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.

An excellent pair of Mars observations. You have captured detail over the Tharsis region very nicely. Thank you for sharing them with us all.
