Eratosthenes

Here you go Alex. Lucky I had a snooze for about an hour while I was out otherwise I couldn't have stayed up to do this.
It's a nice clear night so once I got setup I had a quick look around before turning to the moon, this also gave it a chance to get a bit higher.

Eratosthenes
A nice round crater, the innner wall steps down all around. Appears to have 3 central peaks in this illumination. Outer wall slopes evenly down to surrounding area except where the Apenninus range wraps around the crater.

I went back to pencil on white paper for this one, a bit of touch up once I got inside to the light.
I might try to redo it in pastel on black for comparison.
