I used the Orion Mars filter, #82A blue filter, and a #21 orange filter. The blue filter really brought out the polar ice cap. The Orion Mars filter allowed me to see some surface detail using averted vision. The orange filter did not help much at all.
I think I may need to get a variable polarizing filter to cut down of some of the brightness. I'm thinking some of the surface details are being washed out by the brightness? Any opinions on this?
I used my Orion XT12i telescope, with an Orion 3.5mm Stratus eye piece giving me 428X. The seeing was very good, as viewing the moon was crystal clear!
I'm not sure how some of you get the details that you get. Got the columniation spot on using my Catseye tools.
Here is my sketch.
