The scurrile shadows in the inner of Maginus attracted my view. But the sketch was hard to do. Such a lot of important detail! I am not totally satisfied.

That pointy beam of light is exactly what caught my eye when I observed the Moon half an hour ago! I recognised it immediately. I thought: "that MUST be a sketch made today". Therefore: great sketch!!!

Uwe,

I believe that your observation of Maginus over the southern hemisphere of the Moon is an excellent one. This is a complex region to observe and render. I have softened (blurred) the shadows within the crater and added the surrounding lunar regolith that you started to render. I hope that you like it. You still made an excellent lunar observation!

Uwe,

Very well done. The light across the floor is awesome.

Carlos that gray background works perfectly for Uwe's sketch.
