My first higher magnification sketch of the moon at 250x with a 6" F/8 Dob. I think the craters shown are Aristoteles, Mitchell, Eudoxus, and Alexander. I'm still learning the lunar map. This high magnification stuff is tough without tracking!

Clear skies!

Thanks! I tend to draw quickly. I've never been as good with rendering fine details, although this is something I'd like to work on in the future.

Last drawing of the series. This time, I sketched what I saw inside the eyepiece's field stop to make a circular shaped drawing, something I haven't done before. I added the black border in Photoshop to clean things up and make background black.

I thought it was a full disk drawing with earthshine at first :)

Great sketch!
