Drawing of the lunar crater Copernicus. Located in the western part of the Oceanus Procellarum, Copernicus is a superb 93-km-diameter lunar crater formed less than a billion years following the tremendous impact of a small asteroid. Mounting below presents a photograph of the waxing gibbous moon (taken with a Finepix HS20 housing) and a drawing of the crater close-up (directed to the telescope with a magnification of 200 times).
Thank you, Jean-Baptiste!
