Mars was rich with details. My new Mak 127/1500 showed itself as a good planetary scope:

That's a really small Mars on a really big paper Some extra information you can add with the observation: how big Mars was, the Central Meridian of Mars and is the time in UT or local time?

I think it's great you are still observing Mars and seeing much detail.

S1mas,

Nice little Mars sketch. It looks as if you meant to put a larger version in that circle but it didn't come through.

Thanks guys
Frank, you got it right
I couldn't force myself to draw it large... it was so small in EP with x155 ( I'm still not sure if it was x155, maybe a lot more, because I used barlow x2 in front of my binoviewer nosepiece...), but still sharp, well focused and rich with details.
Jef - I wrote 17:30 UT in subject line.
