Bullialdus Crater

Bullialdus Crater

Object Name: Bullialdus.
Object Type: Lunar Crater
Location: Bristol
Date 3rd March 2012
Media: Drawn at scope with graphite pencil on white paper then scanned and processed using Sketchpad Pro on ipad.

I used an 8″ SCT with a mix of 20mm bino viewers plus 8-24mm Hyperion zoom lens.
Weather was good. The crater was not optimal for shadows but the tiered wall could be seen, as could the multiple peaked mountain in the centre.

I have blurred the result to more closely approximate the actual viewing experience.

  1. Chris,

    This is a very nice sketch of Bullaldus and surrounding craters. Shading on the floors shows the variation in depth.

    Frank 🙂
