That is a very good representation of that crater group, I was actually observing the same area that night, but the sky wasn't really dark. I was hoping to get some shots with my 150mm. F8 Achromatic refractor. Unfortunately, and even though I was in my roll off roof Obs. the wind was causing trouble, and I gave up on the attempt.  Great visual sight though. 

Well done with your sketch, very good indeed.
