This is my secon Mars observation. The CM is nearly the same as three days ago, but the air was steadier. So I could use 187x instead of 144x at my 6" Mak.
I tried to sketch coloured, which gives a better rendering what I saw.

Uwe,

It looks great and especially because of the color. Did you use color pencils or pastel pencils?
I see Mars is no longer gibbous phase.
It has been a long time since I have seen Mars. Weather here has not been good for any kind of observing.
Thanks for posting your fine sketch.

Frank

Looks very similar to how Mars looked to me last week. Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed reminiscing my own observation based on your sketch. You did a good job.

Buddy

Dear Frank,

I used Koh-I-Noor Polycolor artist coloured pencils. These pencils are rich of pigment.

Uwe , good job. I tried observing Mars last week. Too close to the horizon.It looked like a flashing star. Had to go in, do to work!

Dear Jef,

I prepared some sketches graphite pencil outside. It was very cold, -15°C. Nothing for making final sketches.
It was easy to remind the colours inside.

Uwe,

An excellent observation of Mars. You have recorded albedo features surrounding Elysium. I have labeled the major features rendered. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

Dear carlos, thank you for that labelling!

I am interested to see smelting the polar cap in the next weeks and keep sketching. This process I never saw before. This opposition is suited for that.

Uwe,
Joli dessin !
J'ai dessiné Mars en même temps que toi.
C'est marant comme chaque dessinateur interprète différemment les couleurs.
Franck toi et moi avons rendu la couleur de Mars différemment.
