L12: Proclus

Rather small but very bright crater on the western edge of Mare Crisum. At high sun Proclus displays a curious looking ejecta pattern. At the eyepiece the pattern resembles a cyclops with very big ears (or horns).

Sketch made on 4 July 2014 with SkyWatcher 10″ and a TeleVue Nagler zoom 3-6 mm. North is towards the bottom.

Below is a close up sketch of Proclus made two days earlier.

Sketch made on 2 July 2014. Equipment as above.
