When I see all those Marssketches I have the impression it is easier to draw the planet in black/white than in colour. I find it far more difficult to put the differences in albedo on paper with colour pencils.

Jef, it's 'easier' to sketch in B&W, i just mean, the subtle albedo differences are easier to represent then using colours. the scanner may also reduce contrast more or less using colours...

good sketch of the other side of Mars.When I observed Mars last time I saw the side with Syrtis Major.In this area you sketched is much more difficult to see so many details with a 4" refractor.

You have recorded a beautiful view of Mars. Very nice work.

I don't have a scanner so I've been taking pictures with my cheap digital camera. I noticed the pictures lost contrast, so I adjust them in GIMP to look like my original sketch. I learned this useful skill while doing astrophotography. All these disciplines intermesh
