Jerry had set up his telescope and was outside with me for a while before returning to the house to continue with his astroimaging process. My focus was on a few IWLOP objects this evening. Found the Lunar X in area with Purbach, Warner, la Caille and Blanchinus. The Lunar V was formed by Ukert south of Mare Nubium. Lunar Elvis was also identified.  

Also found several of the IWLOP objects this evening. Took detailed notes regarding each of the required and challenge, drew rudimentary sketches of the objects' main features, then finished the sketches indoors based on the notes taken.
