    A sea?

    Misread the question, I believe it is the Caucasus Mountain range.

    The one next to the apennine mountains. Together they both look like a capital Y.
    Sorry if I can't be more precise

    Caucasus?

    I thought that is what it was too, but after trawling through the internet for quite a while it seems like it is more likely to be Montes Alpes.


    This is the position of Montes Alpes https://tools.wmflabs.org/geohack/geohack.php?pagename=List_of_mou ntains_on_the_Moon&params=48.36_ N_0.58_W_globe:Moon

    This is the position of Caucasus https://tools.wmflabs.org/geohack/geohack.php?pagename=List_of_mou ntains_on_the_Moon&params=37.52_ N_9.93_E_globe:Moon

    And this is the apennine- https://tools.wmflabs.org/geohack/geohack.php?pagename=List_of_mou ntains_on_the_Moon&params=19.87_ N_0.03_W_globe:Moon

    None of those links lead to anything but you might be correct. You could try and just use Pythagoras on the latitudes and longitudes to find which one is closest

    Oh, idk why they aren't working.

    The thing is the other mountains may be closer but at a different position to the one I'm after. I guess I'll just write a kind of blanket explanation that applies to any of them, that way I'll only fail if they are nowhere to be found in the drawing.

    What about the constellation drawing coursework, back when I did it, that was the easiest one. Along with the one where we just got a telescope to take pictures for us.

    The constellation one should have been easy, but I miscalculated the magnitudes (I didn't know what the system was), so I'm not sure how that one is going to turn out.

    I could have gotten the telescope to take pictures for me on this CW, but I wasn't sure how to go about it, so I decided to do it with my own telescope. Hopefully I don't end up screwing up both courseworks.

    We used some telescope on the canaries, I think they'll allow you to be a bit off on the apparent magnitudes though.
