A tiny chalk-/charcoal sketch of Gassendi

Dear all,

That’s very nice. Spent ages observing this last night. You’ve captured it very well. My photo for comparison (unedited phone up to the eyepiece job). Think I prefer your sketch :)

Amazing sketch.  Looks so real you could reach out and touch it..

I've had a go at Lunar sketching but they never come out anywhere near as good as this...

Keep them coming...

Hi Achim!

Nice sketch. That's so weird too. I was just admiring your sketch after having spent ages with a moon map trying to identify where I had drawn, and I think I've done the same spot as you. Mine's through a dobsonian reflector so it's upside down. Your sketch is more accurate than mine. Mine's more rushed and sadly cartoonish. I'm not getting on with the white on black for accuracy. 

Thanks for posting. I like your sketch and thanks to you I now know the name of the crater.

Martin.
