It is not easy to sketch something of any value at the young moon in the late summer. This evening I tried it at least: I selected crater Langrenus. The moon stood low in the still blue sky, so I used a red filter at my 8 cm Apo. I used a magnification of 80x. The image is mirror reversed.

There is not too much detail in the image, but the seeing was not very good and I had only 15 minutes before the moon stood really too low.

A rough sketch is better as no sketch at all.

Uwe,

Remember this and make another sketch of Langrenus next Spring. It would be interesting to see the comparison side by side. You have a good capture here but you lose much detail because of all our atmosphere as you say.

Quite a good idea proposed by Frank!

I like your sketch very much Uwe! To have such a good pencil stroke with the moon low in the (blue) sky deserve all my respect!

Jean

Uwe,

You did a good job with Langrenus.
It just happens that an observation gets interrupted. Be it with clouds rolling in or with objects getting too low. It is part of the life of an observer. It reminds me of the wise words of a fellow observer of us: 'Heaven can wait'.
Langrenus will wait for you to be sketched on the next occasion.

Clear skies,

Uwe,

I like it. Yes it's not detailed for the reasons you mention but it is a strong drawing . There's confidence and solidity about it.

Pete

Thank you for your commets. I am glad to read that you like my sketch. My intention posting this was engaging to sketch under far less then ideal conditions.
