I've been meaning to start a lunar sketching log for the past several months.
But between the cloudy weather and the low Moon playing peek a boo through the trees, I haven't had many opportunities to try it out...
Yesterday I began by making a drawing of crater Gassendi from one of my favourite books...
Atlas of the Moon by Vincent de Callatay.
Printed in 1964 and containing some 160 pages.
I cannot recommend this book enough, it's full of beautiful rich toned black & white lunar photographs, taken at the Pic du Midi Observatory in France.
The book also contains a wealth of information about the motion of the Moon, lunar phases, mechanisms of eclipses, lunar relief, origins of lunar formation, libration, tide mechanisms......
...... the list goes on.
Every Luna-tic should have a copy.... :0)
All I need now is for the skies to clear, then once old Tal1 collects those
lunar rays I can get on with some sketching.
