Here are my most recent sketches of the moon. Both are through the XT10. First is a pencil/ink sketch of the sunrise on the floor of Ptolemaes.

Great sketches! I like the sketch of Ptolemaeus very much. Is gives a more impreesive sketch if you ink out the shadows. I experimented with that too.

yes, I like the inked shadows too, they are very dramatic as they cross the floor of the crater.

Great sketches. My favorite is of Timocharis, simple yet dramatic. Love it.

10th,

Excellent sketches--Ptolemaeus pulls the viewer in. I like the contrast on both--lots of depth.

TE,

Excellent observations of Ptolemaeus and Timocharis. The shadows and surrounding features are very interesting. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos
