Just finished a completely graphite sketch of Langrenus. Wonderful shadows and details. Used my 8" Dob with a 6mm plossl. It was truly a lovely sight with some moments of good seeing. Hands were feeling quite stiff and numb even with gloves with the tips cut off. Endymion was very well placed but I stuck with Langrenus. Hot chocolate will help!
Regards,
Randolph

Beautiful, Randolph! I especially love the way you've captured the subtle rays to the left of the crater!

Thank you so much Jason. I suspect sketching will soon be " in winter hibernation " as the nights grow colder
I can wear several layers and feel fine but just can't seem to deal with frozen fingers.
Regards and clear skies,
Randolph

I can relate completely. I'm about 90 miles the way of the crow northeast of you. As long as there's no wind I can sketch down to 20F. If there are winds...fuggetaboutit.

Now tell me how you know "fuggetaboutit"....
Yes, it's the wind that's the "deal breaker" and last night...just so

Thank you Frank. Still think I prefer the black sketch paper/pastels technique for lunar sketching. What a breathtaking vista ( as you well know ) during moments of good seeing.
Regards

Oh yes Uwe, the hot chocolate did indeed take some of the chill away. Also topped it with a layer of warm, heavy cream.
Very good stuff.
