Maybe you can make a little film of a rotating Mars with these three sketches!

Dweller,

An excellent set of Mars observations. I took the liberty of labelling the middle observation (21:10 U.T, CM 348*, Seeing III/V, Red (Wratten 21) Filter). You noted a good amount of albedo features. Thank you for sharing it with us all. The best of luck in future Mars observations.

Carlos

I got no idea. And I never tried it. The only software that I can work with and could to the job is PowerPoint.... But there were allready some movies here on the forum. Maybe they can help you. Let me know!
