Mooncrater – Thebit

The Lunar crater Thebit – November 1, 2014


in this night I used my TMB 115/805 to observe the moon.

After half an hour (I have started around 19:00 clock) I decided to hold the crater “Thebit” for my log. Partly it has not occurred to me somehow and I took more than an hour before I could go on for fine work. The proportions did not want to go out of hand and the many subtleties difficult to carry auf’s paper today. Everything was pretty numb, pins “dashed” strange and haze-winding soaked the paper so that it rippled.

All in all I am very happy to have seen it. It was a great Show.

  1. Aloha Uwe,

    Your sketch is beautiful! I very much like the small details visible in the floor of the crater. This is such an interesting crater to sketch as it changes much depending on the light angle. Great work!!


  2. Uwe,

    This is a terrific graphite sketch of crater Thebit.
    It can be difficult to get the different shades of grey correct but never a problem for you.

    Frank 🙂
