© Alexander Massey I’m throwing my hat into the ring with this sketch of the crater Hercules and surrounds. An average night’s start ended with quite stable conditions to be able to see very fine details. A multitude of fine riles, escarpments and stunning long shadows along the terminator was a dramatic scene I could not resist.
© Alexander Massey This sketch is of one of the brightest features on the Moon, the crater Aristarchus. The brilliantly illuminated internal western wall requires time to spy out the many fine details within it, otherwise these features would be washed out. A myriad of riles radiate out from this crater.

Silvia Graca © I drew this picture on September 14th, 2013 from about 9:15 PM to 10:30 PM CDT from Winnipeg Manitoba. I used a Mead LightSwitch telescope with a 2 inch 8 MM eyepiece. I used graphite pencils and an eraser.
Gerry Smerchanski © Here is my sketch of the Crater Gassendi. Gassendi is found on the 'north shores' of Mare Humorum and is a very complex structure. South rim seems inundated by the Mare while the crater itself exhibits rilles, central peaks, craterlets wall breaches and it is found between Mare and highlands.
