First sketch in a very long time.  First visit with my telescope in a very long time.

Cleomedes and its surroundings provide a beautiful vista at this time.  Sketch was done last evening Oct 15 between 22:45-23:30 EDT.  Ioptron 150, 6mm Zhumell for 316X.

Transparency was average, seeing average.  I have never yet been able to see the rille in Cleomedes.

Felt very nice to be sketching again!

Regards and clear skies,

Randolph

A  great looking sketch of these northeastern crater adjacent to the Sea of Crisis.

 

Well done.

Randolph, welcome back with a bang. It's been a while for me, too, with our rainy monsoon season. Very nicely done. I'll leave the lunar sketching to the pros like you, Frank, and I know I failed to mention others. We know who you are, you're the ones that can actually sketch the moon. smile.gif

 

Edit: Add Francis to the list.

Hi Randolph, 

The essential thing is that you have had fun. For the rille, one day will come...

Thank you for sharing.

 

Clear skies,

Francis

The sketch gives an excellent illusion of light. Thank you.

Randolph,

 

Nice work.  smile.gif   I know what it's like to have to shake the dust off but you've done a fine job here.

 

Isn't this the crater complex that looks like Mickey Mouse's head when the shadows are right?

I had no idea there is a catena north of Buckhardt. 

I must try to observe it. 

 

Sublime sketch, Randolph!
