Two Domes of Tranquility

Two Domes of Tranquility

Lunar crater Arago and domes Arago Alpha and Arago Beta
Sketch and Details by Balázs Benei

Object name: crater Arago, domes Arago Alpha and Beta
Object type: Lunar crater, Lunar dome
Location: Gyöngyös, Hungary
Date: 2008. 10. 19. 23:20 – 23:40 UT


This sketch is one of my oldest, I made it one year ago. The crater and the domes were very easy to find and observe, this triangle is my favourite Lunar area. ‘É’ means north, ‘Ny’ means west on the sketch.
My equipment: 110/800 (4′) Newtonian reflector, 2x barlow, 10mm eyepiece, 160x magnification.

Yours sincerely
