Hallo,

after a long periode of bad weather here in Mülheim an der Ruhr,a sketch of Mars from Thursday February 4th.Unbelievabel clear skies ,so I was using my NoName ED 102 /714 Refractor

Posted Image

While observing the mars I tried all my eyepieces,but with the binoviewer, I mean the view was best.

Markus,

An excellent observation of Mars through your 4" refractor. You have recorded some albedo features over the Syrtis Major region. I have labelled the albedo features visible. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Great drawing, I also find that binoviewers give the best views.

Nice sketch. It's great that you catch so much on the planet, even with a 4"!

Markus,

That's a fine sketch you made--you got a very good look at Mars. I hope you get more good seeing conditions--that and patience is what it takes.

Hallo Michael,Tommy5 and Michael,

I am glad you like my sketch of Mars.

Michael,

kein selbstbau .NoName weil der Händler keine Gravur eines Gerätenamens beim Hersteller bestellt hat,somit preiswerter.
