copernicus and Eratosthenes sketch.

As the title says, this is a sketch of Copernicus and Eratosthenes along with the ghost crater Stadius and the western end of Montes Apenninis. I originally planned to do just Stadius itself but it got out of control fast and what was originally anticipated as a one hour sketch became nearly two! Again, I used 108X even though the seeing was very good to get it done before the moon went behind the trees. There was a bit of haze around and a vast amount of dew so thanks to mental4astro for his dew control tips. In hindsight it was a bit silly to do Copernicus again but the different lighting conditions made up for it.
