Another sketch, this time of Copernicus. I thought it would only take 1/2 hour but I was sorely mistaken. Details I didn't notice on other visits to the area presented themselves and I took a little over an hour. As an off-topic bonus, when I looked at Jupiter Io and its shadow where about to begin a transit so I watched as it gradually got closer, the shadow appeared on Jupiter and eventually Io itself entered the disk. Earlier in the night all four moons plus the disk where visible in binoculars but still no binocular cloud band.
108X magnification was used to decrease the effects of below average seeing.
