Petavius




Petavius
27/11/15 2230UT
Phase
Lunation
Illumination
Antoniadi II
305mm OOUK VX12L / 8mm Delos x198

Sketched in the evening lunar sun with a diameter of 177km Petavius is a large crater with its distinctive Rimae running for 80km along the crater floor.
I always find sketching craters off the terminator very hard, its the fine differences of contrast that makes craters like this really stand out but are also very hard to capture.
