Please find attached a sketch of the lunar crater Plato and its environs….I used soft graphite pencils to do the sketch on cartridge paper. The colours were then inverted on the computer. This sketch is based on a number of observations I have made of Plato in the last year. I use a Meade LX90 GPS telescope. It has an aperture of 203mm. Plato is one of my favourite regions on the Moon as I love how the crater is filled with deep shadows when the sun is at a low angle. I also have a website with more of my photographic work at Photos of Weather.

  1. Kiran,

    Enjoyed your sketch of carter Plato. Inverting the sketch creates a very interesting display of the light and dark regions.
