Can't help myself, this is getting exciting and challenging. I have an old known and new found respect for lunar sketchers.

Below is Kepler, I hope it looks like it.

Seeing was modest, not great. Magnification was 320x on 12 Feb 1600UT.

Thank you, guys. Jason, yea, expanding into some lunar observing...trying something new.

I wish I could have made the central peak appear more "rocky." It'll come...

Small craters are easy.

Hi Norme,

Yep, that's Kepler. The straight shadow in the crater kind of threw me off at first, but after doing a Google image search, I say that you got it spot on. That is Kepler.

Great sketch and quite inspiring!
