Harold Hill's lunar drawing is very shocking and impressive!

After read his drawing portfolio book, I decide to make sketching.

'Pointillism' is fruits of my efforts.

Dip a pen in ink, point dots on the white paper when I have time from work for two weeks.

I think it is good method to express bleak and dry landscape.

Looks great!

You can find tons of such sketches in the books Gerald North: Observing the moon and Peter Wlasuk: Observing the moon (same title on both books).
The most important advance of this technique is that you can photocopy sketches without much degration.
It seems nearly impossible for me to sketch in such a way direct at the eyepiece. May be the sketches were made from raw outlines. And you need the patient of a zen archery student of course.
