Yesterday evening I had the chance to sketch the pair. I could only use around 70x with my 8 cm Apo. The moon stood too low, the air there was'nt very steady.
The image is mirror reversed.

Uwe, your excellent sketch conveys a lot of information, with a fluent economy of line that captures the essence of a good observation and drawing made at the eyepiece. Thanks for sharing!

Uwe,

Very fine capture of the pair. You are generating some excellent lunar sketches as of late. Glad to see your skies are clearing in recent days.

Frank
