Mare Nectaris region

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

after the clouds vanished later in the evening, I set up the 10" Dobsonian in the courtyard and went for a lunar sketch. This time I had to start with 10mm eyepiece since the seeing wasn't proper in the beginning. Later on I could change to 5mm giving 250x.

So here's my sketch of Mare Nectaris region:


Telescope: Martini 10" f/5 Dobsonian

Eyepieces: 10mm Celestron X-cel and 5mm Skywatcher Planetary

Date & Time: Dec 30th, 2015 / 0015-0130 CET

Place: home courtyard, Dusseldorf region, Germany

Technique: Koh-i-noor chalk and charcoal pencils on black Daler Rowney Ebony sketching paper

Lunar age: 19 days

Hope you enjoy it!

Clear skies!
