Dear all,

 

tonight, the moon rose nicely and bright above the neighbour house. I just observed it from behind the window at convenient 21°C - much better than the 0°C outside. I went for a full disc sketch:

Achim, thats really a fine sketch. The craters on the limb stand out in contrast stark relief. And sketching from indoors is certainly a benefit when its that cold!

Dear all,
thanks for the great feedback and all the likes!

How long did it take you to draw that?


It is done completely at the eyepiece and took one hour.

Clear skies!

Oh yes!!!

 

That's a fantastic sketch of the Moon Achim. The subtle difference in colour across your sketch is incredible, and Tycho looks brilliant. Very well done!

 

Clear skies,

Darren.
