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.
