From the darkening Mayday sky the Beltane Moon was calling.
Helen and I dragged out "Oscar" the beast of telescopes, our 12 inch reflector.
The Theophilus chain (Theophilus, Cyrillus, Catharina) stood out well tonight, highlighted beautifully along the terminator.
After taking a few more photographs I sketched the three craters using Conte pencil and Ink.
