I wanted to try another sketch along the terminator using a higher magnification so I could concentrate on just one or two craters.

I used a 13mm eyepiece with a 2x barlow lens to give me 230x magnification.

There was a lot of high level cloud and a distinct lack of stars when I started, so once again I couldn't do an alignment, so made do with continually adjusting the scope to bring the crater back into view.

The twin peaks in the centre of the crater, and the intersection with Gassendi A really make this crater stand out.
