This is a sketch I drew the other night of Sinus Iridum. I was viewing with an E.S. 80mm refractor. I added the text from a moon map. Thanks for viewing.

One thing I like a lot about moonsketching is the personal style of every sketcher. The used techniques are far more different than by deepsky sketching.
I like this style! Watch out Rükl...

Jody,

Extremely well done! You could do reference maps with that skill. Absolutely love the details. How long did it take to do this? Thank you for sharing it and Welcome to CloudyNights!

Excellent sketch of the northern rim of Mare Imbrium Jody. I really enjoy your technique. You've captured a huge swath of lunar terrain. Well done and welcome to the Sketching forum! :waytogo:
