Thanks a lot Tom and Uwe.
The surface shows it seems a calm activity apart on the volcano area a brightening in blue channel, and one on Neith area (near Utopia) in yellow green channel.
May be an hazze at the pole, south area (Hellas is not so far from the limb).
Didn't have enough courage this morning, we will see later.

Stanislas-Jean,
Very happy to see some Mars sketches. Nice observation with Mars still less than 6". That's an interesting cloud over Utopia in blue light--nice catch. With spring happening in the north there should be lots more clouds.

Mars is workable well now, apart the sky conditions still agitated in Europe.
Thanks for your post.

Stanislas-Jean,

Good sketches of Mars. Especially at such a small size. Inspiring to see what can be done now.

Thanks for posting. Dean

Thanks Dean for your post.
Difficult to perform more, weather is rather average here near Paris, sothat 9" for the moment is the best possible.
