Hi all, i had another look at Mars, this time with a more aesthetical side with Syrtis Major rotating of the disk facing us.

NPC getting smaller, hellas as bright as the pole cap and sinus sabaeus sharply defined.

had a chanche to use my binoviewer again, some folks seem to improve their observations a lot, i'm still 'learning' to use it.

the next week or so should be prime time for us to get a good view of syrtis major + hellas!

That's a great observation Kris - I do find binoviewers help improve the view
