It has been a while since I posted. I have been sketching my way through the Nexstar Lunar 50 list but have not had much time to transfer these to the PC. I find I am sketching for 30 mins and processing for 10x that so I now have sympathy with astrophotographer's dilema (easy to shoot, hard to process). Anyway here is my latest (April) sketch (Pythagoras) and so I shall probably be adding a few more in the next weeks (in reverse sequence!)



and with notes

That's one of the most "3D" sketches I've seen. Very nicely done!

Chris,

An excellent observation of Pythagoras. You have captured the crater walls and shadows very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos
