Chalk-/charcoal sketch of Montes Recti


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

after a long absence of lunar sketching - and posting here - I came back to the moon yesterday evening. This time I didn't do a crater sketch but decided to go for Montes Recti. This is the result:


Telescope: Martini 10" f/5 truss-tube Dobsonian
Eyepiece: Explore Scientific 6.7mm/82°
Date & Time: October 15th, 2021 / 2030-2115 CEST
Location: home terrace, Dusseldorf region, Germany
Technique: Koh-i-Noor charcoal, whitecoal and chalk blocks and pens on black sketching paper
Size: 12x8cm

Clear skies!

Hi Achim,

I so enjoy your style. You pick up/sketch those little details that make a sketch come alive.

It is time I got back to sketching but I busy myself with other interests besides astronomy.

All the best
