Crater Eddington

Near full moon it is hard to find a rewarding target. The partial flooded Eddington is such a crater. I sketched it with my 6 inch Mak at 144x. Time was 20:35 UT.

Uwe,

This is a great crater to sketch in this light. The lava breaching through the wall and flooding the floor and partially burying the wall is iconic.
Beautiful work on this one.

Frank

Uwe,

An excellent observation of Eddington. You have recorded delicate detail across the floor of the crater. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

Uwe,

Nice sketch. I really like the way the floor is shaded. Along with that, the way you drew the bright western rim and the broken eastern rim give the crater depth.
