Mars - 4th April 2010
      #3724576 - 04/04/10 04:40 PM Attachment (44 downloads)

Viewed during dusk as this seems to help with the 'detail'

Mars is very small now and I had to use high power to get a decent sized globe.

8" F/6 Newtonian at x300.

4th April 2010 - 19:25UT

CM = 105', Seeing = AII

Thats a fine sketch! I agree about the mag.. last time I tried, 193x wasn't enough to get a decent size of the planet.

Thanks Rodi, it's probably my last Mars drawing this opposition.

dweller,

Very nice sketch. It looks like you picked a good time of day to make this one.

Dweller25,

Very nice sketch! I think I made my last sketch of Mars about two weeks ago as the weather has been horrible ever since (5-10 inches of snow coming today!).

Thanks Guys,

The weather has now clouded over in the UK for a few days - but at least we don't have snow !!!

Clear skies to all - soon hopefully.
