Dear observers,

this night I had the chance dto see the Red Planet again. The Northern polar cap is slightly smaller, but not much. The Southern polar hood is largeish. I saw some detail, especially Utopia and m. Tyrrhenium.
The instrument was my 6 inch Mak at 300x.

Uwe,

Nice job on your sketch--Mars is hard to see detail and getting harder. You have a nice body of work on Mars on your website. :)
