Quote:Michael; very recent images of this side of mars don't show anything like the feature i drew next to the pole cap. but some images of the 2nd of february at the CMO site do show something like what i thought to have seen. strange because i wasn't aware there has been dust activity going on in that region, and recent images suggest it's not visible anymore right now
Quote:i also couldn't detect the darker streak crossing the pole cap either...

Quote:i did shortly use a green and red filter. the view with the red one was quite dim through the 8" and actually i've never had much luck observing with the green filter
