Been going through some of the sketches on these pages and I have to say I am blown away by the detail you guys have captured. Here is my first sketch of the moon since I was about 14 on my 4.5" Tasco Reflector.

I was looking for an interesting feature which stood out tonight and Vallis Schroteri really caught my eye along with bright Aristarchus. Was hoping to spend some time capturing more detail but the blood thirsty mozzies and clouds ended up shortening the sketch (even though just this took about 90 mins).

One thing I have remembered since my last sketch all those years ago is how much detail the moon has. At first glance you look at an area and think, yeah this will be quick and then as you get going you realise just how much detail there is!

Drawn using:
SW 10" Dob
SW 10mm superpossl
Televue 2x Barlow
2B pencil

Should probably have used a scanner rather than my phone to post the sketch.
