An excellent observation of Mars at a small apparent diameter. I adjusted the colors a little and blurred it as well. I hope that you like it. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Very nice sketch with an 8" scope on such a small target.
As you mentioned the best views now are before dark.

Nice work on a *very* tough target.
Twilight is often a good time to observe planets.

Kris - I'm using my Celestron SCT on Alt/Az mount with GoTo, so task - to find Mars, is easy straight after Sun goes down.

Great work with your instruments and your eye, impressive. Wish the skies here would allow for a session . . . maybe tonight.

good sketch of Mars.At my last observation it was very difficult to see any details and I couldn't make a sketch .So great what you still see on Mars.
