Hi Alex,

Yes, there is still great value in drawing the Moon’s surface features, not least to help to familiarise yourself with the Moon’s complex topography and ever-changing illumination. You will find more about possible observing programmes on the Lunar Section website, but feel free to contact me by e-mail if you have further questions. There is a book on techniques for sketching the Moon: Sketching the Moon: An Astronomical Artist’s Guide, by Richard Handy, Deirdre Kelleghan, Thomas McCague, Erika Rix and Sally Russell (Springer, 2012). Hope this helps!
