Edge of Darkness

Object Name: Theophilus crater on Moon
Object Type: Moon
Location: Budapest, Hungary
Date 8th April 2011
Media: graphite pencil on white paper. No digital tools used.
Equipment used: 130/650 SW, 130x (5 mm Planetary ocular).

It was the first time I tried my 5 mm Planetary ocular on the Moon. It was fascinating, beautiful. It showed me a lot of small details. First I was just watching it with opened mouth then I started to make a sketch about a crater I liked the most. First I made a not-so detailed sketch with some notes, then I started to draw into a new paper from the sketch. I did not like this first drawing so started again from the first sketch and by watching the Moon with the telescope. I have learnt a lot about how the shadows and ligts are changing.
