Quote:Frank, you are a lunar freak. Your perseverance and deliberation must be akin to a wild cat during the hunt. I am mesmerized by the degree of detail available, here. Cleomedes is gorgeous...I love the contrast of the smaller craters tops within as they "pop" into the landscape. But I am unduly frightened by the fractured landscape to the upper left of the crater. Your work is inspiring me to give the lunar surface another trial. Brilliant sketch.
