I have posted sketches of these three along with a short blurb on origins of the moon. If you care to look, click on the blog link under my signature.

It was different for me this time: grabbed a 12.5 Dob and sat on a stool as the moon set. It was comfortable at this angle with just a 13mm wide angle EP. Pleasant time with geese flying by at sunset, some summer sounds, and a light cool breeze. August days are rarely this nice.

Great sketches! I especially liked those of M106, NGC 4485/4490 and M20 further down the page a bit. Great details!
