Greetings everyone!

Paul,

An outstanding montage of your excellent Mars observations for 2010. All of your observations display fine detail and are well executed. I know that Sir Patrick (Moore) would be proud of you. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

Great sketches! What date was made by sketch "I"?
I wanted to compare, I have a very similar sketch for 19 December 2009.
