Rima Hadley

A sketch of the Apollo 15 landing area. This required every drop of telescope resolution and sharpness in only a 130mm, but I could see almost all of the valley. This sketch was inspired by http://www.iceinspace.com.au/forum/s...d.php?t=135357, a panorama including Rima Hadley by Star Catcher (Ted Dobosz) and the Mythbusters episode on the moon conspiracy. The Apollo 15 landing site is circled.
time: 1 1/4 hours
eyepiece: 6mm Edge-On and 2X Barlow
seeing: above average
transparency: very good
wind speed: no wind
Dew: no dew
