tonight I had a look outside and – yeah, no clouds and clear skies.
So I took out the 10″ f/5 truss dobsonian and prepared for lunar sketching: Today the floor-fractured crater Gassendi attracted me and presented nice central peaks and its rimae on its ground.
Telescope: 10″ f/5 Martini Dobsonian
Eyepiece: Skywatcher Planetary 5mm
Date & Time: Jan 31st, 2015 / 1925-2015 CET
Place: home terrace, Dusseldorf region, Germany
Technique: chalk, charcoal and white pastel on black sketching cardbox paper
Hope you like the sketch.

This is a fine close up sketch of crater Gassendi in good light.
Crater Gassendi is always an interesting subject. Nicely done.
