Lunar sketch - Aristarchus



Crater Aristarchus sketched last night in between spells of low level cloud which eventually stopped me  from adding the finishing touches so in a way this sketch isnt quite complete.
Nearly 25 miles in diameter and 2.3 miles deep with Prinz (lower left) and Bayley (top) craters nearby.

Antoniadi IV seeing so I used a fairly low power 7mm Pentax XW giving me x218 magnification.
