The Flamsteed ring is a flooded crater in the southern parts of Oceanus Procellarum. On the southern side is the small Flamsteed crater giving the ring its formal name, Flamsteed P. This sketch was made during high sun, so little detail was seen.
A rather quick sketch of Mare Humorum and a number of prominent craters, including Mersenius and Gassendi. The seeing for once was perfect, but after having finished several other sketches the same evening my endurance failed me.
Below is an earlier sketch focusing on the Gassendi crater. This was my first try at a close up sketch of one of the larger craters. At the time seeing was perfect, but light clouds kept interfering.
This very impressive crater on the north-eastern shores of Mare Serenitatis was captured on a night of average seeing. Still quite a lot of detail was visible. Part of a secondary inner ring could be traced on the east and west side, and the small crater (Posidonius A) near the center was very prominent. The rilles crisscrossing the crater floor couldn’t be resolved.
So far my only try at the moon as such. This sketch was made during my first year as an amateur, and I remember capitulating to the overwhelming wealth of features to draw.
This is one of my favorite regions on the moon, and it is also where I started out doing moon observations. I have done several sketches of the region, but so far no detailed studies of Aristarchos. The former is rich in detail and very bright, especially compared to neighboring Herodotos. Schröter’s Valley is a sinuous rille, that is believed to have been one of the major lava sources of Oceanus Procellarum. To the right is the moon’s thinnest mountain chain, Montes Agricola.
Arguably the most impressive craters on the near side of the moon. The level of detail is very difficult to capture for a lunar newbie like myself. This is my first try, and I will for sure give it another go further down the road.
Impressive mountain range on the southern shores of Mare Imbrium and stretching northeast from Eratosthenes. The highest peaks reaches well over 5000 meters.
