We finally got a clear warm night. Lots to see on the Moon tonight. Sketched Crater Gassendi and surrounding area. Just so much to see in this area. I used my 8 inch reflector at 240x.

Ken,

Very nice sketching of the environs of Crater Gassendi.
You have captured it beautifully right there on the shore of Mare Humorum.

Fine sketch. You can try to darken the background in PS.

Thanks Frank and Jef,
I have to do some editing. I think the iPhone washed out the terminator.
