Now that the sun was up, the features were somewhat bright but not completely washed out. Drew some of the features I saw but I obviously did not make much attempt at identifying them other than Posidonius and Tycho. At this point, I was getting used to the newly acquired 8" Meade SCT "push-to" telescope. With the star diagonal, I was sometimes confused as things were not only backwards (as they should be) but felt as though sometimes they were backwards and upside-down. Don't ask - I can't explain.
