Hello Astronomy Sketchers,all o.k.?

After bad weather i decide to observe and drawing the Moon.The vision is partially clear,humidity and clouds cover the sky and made a sketch was very difficult.But yesterday,the sky was clear and i take my little Vixen vmc 110 klevstov .I observe the north zone and decide to drawing two beautyfull craters:Philolaus and Anaximenes.The execution, at the end, was complicated by the passage of light clouds and humidity.I hope like you .

Clear sky and good sketch for all.
