Just came in from observing Mars.
Seeing wasn't great, sharp view in moments but mostly soft. Contrast between dark areas and the rest of the surface wasn't as hard as the drawing might indicate.
Sorry for the black/white drawing only, I'm goung to get some color pencils in near future :jump:

Thanks, Tommy5 and Frank.
The mag is too high but a litle short on EP's right now, nevertheless the Nagler Zoom gave the best posible view than my next step below wich are my Baader 12,5 mm Ortho at 193x.

Good catch Rodi, Mars is shrinking rapidly now.
