Both large craters hit my view and I begun to sketch. Instrument was my 8 cm Apo at 96x. The image is mirror reversed (Oct. 19th, 21:50 UT)

Lovely sketch! Did you do this in graphite?

Thank you Uwe. I've got to get up the courage to try graphite. I've tried charcoals and always, always mess it up.

Hello Uwe,

You caught them at a very favorable time and lunar libration, congratulations.
The sketch looks great. I like the paper too.

Frank

My son gifted me two years ago an observation book which has this paper:

I love it!

Very interesting sketch Uwe! There's a lot of details in it. Graphite pencils seems to be quite powerful in your hand. I should try that one of these evening!

Thanks for sharing!

Jean
