This evening I saw the red planet very contrasty in my 6 inch Mak @300x. The northern polar cap is smelting slowly now, because we have the aphel cooling. But there are hints that the southern polar hood is growing.

Nice sketch Uwe, your mars eye is developing rapidly, as your sketches keep getting better with each observation :)
