An Excellent Piece: Kies Pi Dome

Kies Pi Dome

Kies Pi Lunar Dome
Sketch and Details by Balázs Benei

Object name: Kies craters, dome Kies
Object type: Lunar crater, Lunar dome
Location: Gyöngyös, Hungary
Date: 2009. 03. 06. 18:20 – 18:40 UT


this is one of my first sketches from a Lunar object. I liked to observe the domes of the Moon and I decided to make sketches. The Dome Kies Pi was hard to observ, seeing was not very good (s=5). I made the sketch with graphite pencil. It was very exciting to make this sketch, I hope, my technique will grow up in time.
My equipment: 110/800 (4′) Newtonian reflector, 2x barlow, 10mm eyepiece, 160x magnification.

Yours sincerely
Balázs Benei

  1. Balázs,

    You have made an excellent capture of this fine dome. This can be difficult to accomplish if the lighting and seeing are not perfect.

    Frank 🙂
