Dear observers,

 

this evening the young moon stood high in the sky and I observed it for a while. Eventual, I started to sketch. I selected Gutenberg, because of its interesting surroundings and its shadow cast.

 

I used my 4 inch refractor at 144, I sketched with chalk pencils.

Hi Uwe,

hey, you did a white,-on-black sketch again! Grear! And Gutenberg is obviously a fine target!

Thanks for sharing with us!
