Dear observers,

the air was not very steady today what it made it hard to see fine detail on the planet. In comparision to my last observation the NPC is slightly smaller.

Uwe,

Nicely done. I like the shadows and the hint of detail.

Beau dessin Uwe,
J'aime bien la couleur, et malgrés de "faible" grossissements (seulement 140 et 187) tu vois bien des détails !

Nice sketch. You can see the progress you make in sketching Mars. I hope you can catch the planet again next days because here in Belgium it is allready 6 days/nigths without one hole in the sky And it doesn't look like the bad weather is going to change!

Uwe,

An excellent observation of Mars. The albedo feature adjacent to the brilliant North Polar Cap (NPC) may be Mare Acidalium. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Uwe,

Beautiful capture, I especially like the colors you selected and intensity of the polar cap.
