Thank you gentlemen.

I've had a bit of a run on Moon sketches. I managed another two this last weekend.

This one is of the region around the crater Brisbane. As it happens, the Australian link to this crater is a direct one as I've noted in the General Chat forum thread Brisbane City and crater linked.

I chose this section to sketch for the striking wedge shaped cluster of craters close to the terminator one day after the full Moon. This was the first time I chased down something to sketch at this phase of the Moon, and I was surprised to see so much was on offer to observe and sketch.

Object: Brisbane crater et al.
Scope: C8, 8" SCT
Gear: 9mm TMB Planetary Type II, 222X
Date: 3rd August, 2012
Location: Sydney, Oz.
Media: Soft pastel, charcoal, white ink and white china graph on A5 size black paper
