Hi all!
This is my observation of Mars during the opposition day. Despite low altitude of the planet I experienced good seeing. Observation were made at 151x & 228x with an 90mm refractor and a Baader M&S filter. The most proeminent feature were M. Acidalium, Niliacus, M. Erythraeum and Sinus Meridiani wich display a dark-grey hue. One limb display bright clouds, towards Tharsis. NPC was visible, but really small.

Catalin,

An impressive observation made using your 90mm refractor! You recorded much surface detail over the Martian disk. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Regards,
Carlos

I know I am repeating what everyone else has already posted but,

Wow, that's very good for a 90mm scope

Catalin, that's a bang up Mars observation. Nice. Thanks for sharing. Wait, I just glanced up and read Chris's comment. That's in a 90mm scope? Oh, yea...very nice. I observed Mars once this year, it appeared larger than I remember it at opposition last time.
