Montes Caucasus – June 15, 2013

Object Type: Moon
Location: Barcelona – Spain

I don’t observe the moon as much as I would like. It’s a shame, because when I do it, I always really enjoy it. On the seventh night of lunation, the Montes Caucasus shadows are really exciting. I would like to know how to draw better to capture what I could really see that June night. It was amazing.

For more details of my observation you can visit my blog:

Date and Time: 2013-06-15, 21h 05m UT
Telescope: SC Celestron Nexstar 5i (127mm)
Eyepiece: 6mm (208.33x)
White paper, HB2 graphite pencil, and scanned and inverted with Photoshop
Seeing: 4/5 (5 the best)
Transparency: Clear. A little light pollution.

Thank you and best regards.

    This is a wonderful capture of the Caucasus mountains. You don’t need any help with your sketching ; as far as I can see you are doing great as of now.
