Dear all,

 

first of all Happy New Year to all of you!

 

Today we had a very sunny day over here, so I set up my Dobsonian telescope waiting for the moon. Since I could not decide for a single crater to sketch, I went for the whole visible moon and spent about an hour with that.

Location: home terrace, Dusseldorf region, Germany

Size: appr. 20 cm diameter

 

Clear skies!

Achim

Hello Achim,

 

you´ve the same idea to watch the moon...i do it, too this evening. It´s the first astronomical observation and sketch since months...In opposite to you, i decided to sketch the "crater trio" Aristoteles with Mitchell, Eudoxus and Alexander.

 

Clear skies, Jens
