hi all,,

I took the last 2 weeks only one Mars sketch
at my holiday in the Provence/France, because my observation place was at the south behind a mountain crest.
Often I had falling north winds with very bad seeing :p.

Ok, here now the sketch :

Bye
Christian

Christian,

A nice looking sketch.
It is a shame when circumstances conspire against our sketching efforts.
Nevertheless a fine capture.

Frank :)

Good sketch. I'm also starting to detect the terminator, like you depict in your sketch.

Christian,

An excellent observation of Mars. I am sorry that your seeing did not allow you to make more observations of Mars. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Regards,
Carlos
