This evening I sketched these rarely portraied moon's features. I used my 8 cm Ap at 120x. The image is mirror reversed.

Thank you for sharing Uwe! I especially like the mountain peak and the shadow behind it. Well done!

Uwe,

These are fantastic captures of these libration zone targets.
I looked at both of them last evening but didn't sketch because of poor seeing. I'm glad you did these sketches.

Frank

Uwe,
Thanks for the peek "around the corner" of the lunar limb.

> peek "around the corner"

That was the most interesting thing. Both features did not show too many details to sketch. But they are rarely to be seen such clearly.
Thank you for your answers.
