Kanguk,

An excellent observation of Capuanus. You have recorded the walls and shadows of this small crater very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all. I look forward to your future observations.

Carlos

Dear Kanguk,

I like the way of your shadowing. Very plastic!
Small(er) craters are worth sketching too.

I agree with Uwe, as well as other comments about your sketching style. It easily has a 3-dimensional feel.

You used an 80mm scope at only 80x to capture such detail on a relatively small crater. You obviously have a keen eye for detail, as well as an excellent scope and eyepiece.

Keep up the great work!
