It gets harder to see any detail on the Red Planet. After some cloudy day I had the chance to have a closer look again. The NPC is shrinking remakabely. The aphel cooling effect seem to decline.

Uwe,

Another wonderful observation of Mars. I like the shading on your details. I really like how on your website I can scroll through the various sketches you have made of Mars this year to compare and contrast them.

Uwe,

Great sketch. Although Mars is getting away it is nice to see more of your fine sketches as it leaves. :rainbow: :bow:

Frank :)

Uwe, great sketch with keen eyes behind a great instrument :)

I tried it out a couple of days ago, but could only make out the NPC and some darkenings on the southpole.
