Crater Bullialdus
      #5561930 - 12/09/12 07:02 AM Attachment (30 downloads)

The day before yesterday I had to travel. I had some time before I must start to reach my train. Before breakfast. So I took my 8 cm Apo outside to let it cool down. Half an hour later it was still dark enough to look at the moon. In the best light I found Copernicus, but it was too complex for the time I had. So I sketched Bullialdus. It was a very fine beginning of that day.

Today I had the time to finish the sketch, especially to ink the deep shadows.

Uwe,

That is a great looking sketch of Bullialdus and I like the way you use your early morning time.
Excellent.

Frank

Very nice, Uwe. You captured that central peak at just the right time. It must have really caught your eye in the ep.

That's beautiful, Uwe. The shadow effect inside the right crater wall is awesome.

Absolutely, Uwe, you have a nice technique that augments your talent for lunar observing. You turn out some very nice work.

Uwe,
That's a nice sketch .You really captured the sharp contrasts of the crater walls and the more subtle changes on the sunlit outside. The central peak also is great.
