I don't know what time it was; I just waited for my favourite view of Mars to appear (with Chryse rising and Hellas setting).

A lot less than I usually use - Southernly winds and a couple of large trees mess up the seeing fairly close to my garden.

IIRC, roughly 320x.

Sixela,

Beautifully rendered Mars. What media do you use?

Paper and colour pencils, then a DSLR photo to transfer to PC, and final touches (not too much, just enough to remove some of the noise) in Gimp.
