On the Northwest Shore of Humorum

Object Name: Gassendi crater
Object Type: Moon
Location: Budapest, Hungary
Date: 14th April 2011
Media: Graphite pencil on white paper. No digital tools used
Equipment used: 130/650 SW 130x, 5 mm Planetary ocular

The weather was awful, what to say: I had approximately 30 minutes to sketch. However, I liked this crater very much, so I tried my best to draw it. I quickly done a sketch then worked out my final draw in the room when all the milky clouds covered the Moon.
