3 Day old Moon

3 Day old Moon

Beautiful clear evening with the crescent Moon in the west-southwest after sunset.
Earthshine was weak and not included. I used my 4.25 inch f/5 Dobsonian scope with 25 mm eyepiece for 22x magnification. This scope also serves as the finder scope on my 18 inch telescope.
Date for this eyepiece sketch was September 18, 2023 at 01:45 UT. Seeing and transparency were above average. Moon was 8.0% illuminated.
