Moon sketch: Sinus Iridium


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I made a pastel sketch of one of the nicest features on the Moon: Sinus Iridium. The Sun's angle was just right to give the surface that gradient view: dark near Montes Jura with a gradual brightening towards the west. A few rilles were also visible. It was a very pretty site through my 300mm f/4 truss Dob using a 5mm HR Planetary eyepiece (240x). Sketch made with white pastel on black paper.
