An excellent osbervation of Mars. I have resized your observation, placed it within a frame, then labeled it. I hope that you like it. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

If you wait for steady seeing you will be rewarded with fine albedo features that appear as "canals." I look forward to your future observations.

Excellent observation and sketch of Mars
That is very similar to what I am seeing in my old 10.1" f/4.5 Dobsonian on a night of reasonably steady seeing.
You and Carlos now have me wanting to look for and sketch Schiaparelli's and Lowell's canali! >
