Louise Racine ©   This was sketched with graphite pencils, yellow pencil and black pen on standard white paper. The telescope was a Newtonian dobsonian 8'' with a Baader Astrosolar filter and a 13mm eyepiece. (Sorry for the blue effect, seems to be the result of scanning).

Clear skies!

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.

Sketch © Gerry Smerchanski  I only had time for one sketch and even that was rushed with many details being left out. I did take time to watch the occultation of Beta Capricornus (Dabih) It was quite some time between the disappearance of the first companion and the second as they are separated by some distance. After they disappeared I went to sketching and didn't notice that they had popped out the other side while I was still sketching.
