Moon-Vieta.png

 

Hi everyone, 

 

  Last night, I turned my telescope to a nearly full Moon behind an unsteady curtain of high clouds. Diminished contrast, seeing not great (II/III Antoniadi).

  I tried sketching Schickard first, but things were not turning out right. So, I gave up and turned to Vieta, instead.

 

  Vieta lies SE of Mare Humorum. Poor seeing did not  allow definition of the small craterlets' chain on Vieta's floor, just a brighter elongated area, instead.  

 

Best wishes,

Miguel

I like the depth, it's very realistic.
