I sketched this evening the same region than your sketch. Not really competition for your beautiful work... but I used a smaller telescope (7cm) and less amplification (x150).
I don't why, but I'm not satisfied with the result. In reality the mountains around Euclides made a beautiful flower in the eyepiece. I didn't succeeded to put that feature on paper quit well. Maybe I drew the mountains to big? I'm not satisfied with the blending (with a cotton swab) either.
One moment the image dimmed in the eyepiece. I looked up and there were some (ice)clouds beforen the moon with a beautiful rainbow (it was not a halo) around our satellite! The first time I saw that. I ran inside for the camera and managed to take two (bad) pictures before it disappeared. Only for that it was worth trying to sketch this region.

26/12/2009, 17.45-18.45 UT, ETX-70 @ x150, white and black pencil on black paper, scanned and mirrored, no processing (this is the raw eyepiece-sketch)

BTW The second, small crater is in reality a mountain!

Jef,

Your sketch of Euclides and Montes Riphaeus looks great. You caught the features a little closer to the terminator than I did and your sketch is orientated north up. Shadowing is very nice and you have given it a great 3-D look.

Carlos,

Thank you again.

Frank,

Wonderful that APOD posted your image, so very well done and deserving. I'm going after Aristotles and Eudoxus tomorrow night starting at twilight, thanks Frank for the suggestion.

Jef,

Your 3-D capture in your image is tremendous.

Thanks,

Jay

Thanks for the kind words. I looked at internet for the special Moon I saw. It was a Corona! It is caused by waterclouds and not iceclouds.

@ Jay: Good luck with sketching te Moon!
