Hallo,

after a long periode of bad weather here in Mülheim an der Ruhr,a sketch of Mars from Thursday February 4th.Unbelievabel clear skies ,so I was using my NoName ED 102 /714 Refractor



While observing the mars I tried all my eyepieces,but with the binoviewer, I mean the view was best.

Markus,

An excellent observation of Mars through your 4" refractor. You have recorded some albedo features over the Syrtis Major region. I have labelled the albedo features visible. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Great drawing, I also find that binoviewers give the best views.

Nice sketch. It's great that you catch so much on the planet, even with a 4"!

Markus,

That's a fine sketch you made--you got a very good look at Mars. I hope you get more good seeing conditions--that and patience is what it takes.
