Lieber Markus, da ist doch schon einiges zu sehen in deinem Bild! Man muss sich in das kleine Marsscheibchen erst "einsehen", das dauert ein wenig.

Hallo Lynn,

thank you for your compliment. :jump: I hope you had clear skies, so I can see your Mars sketch :grin:
Like the weatherforecast for my place said we get better weather here, I hope for some more nights with mars observing.
