Gassendi and Mersenius Craters – September 17, 2013


Please accept my sketch of Gassendi and Mersenius craters and surrounding region. I created this sketch from my backyard in Green Bay, Wisconsin during a night of rare excellent seeing. Its a very interesting region of the Moon just off the boarder of Mare Humorium. I made the sketch using my 10in Discovery Dobsonian telescope at 170x with a neutral filter. For this sketch I used white paper with 2H, HB and 2B graphite pencils and blending stumps to smooth. I hope you enjoy it.

  1. Brian,

    This is an impressive graphite capture at the eyepiece of that 10 inch scope.

    Frank 🙂
