Mars - 10th March 2010

Mars is still showing some detail - but getting quite small.

For this drawing I used two x2 Barlows and a 18mm Orthoscopic eyepiece. It was a bit of an experiment putting two barlows together but it worked as the image was sharp and contrasty - identical to using one x2 barlow and a 9mm Ortho.

8" F/6 Newtonian at x267.

dweller25,

This fits in very nicely with your other super Mars sketches. I like the color of this one too.
