Mars - 15th April 2014 new
      #6469802 - 04/16/14 01:51 PM Attachment (39 downloads)

Had good seeing tonight, Mars was around 28' high when I drew this at 20:20UT using an 8" Maksutov at x200.

Syrtis Major was easy to see and it was surrounding a very bright area that could have been mistaken for a polar cap.

The real polar cap opposite Syrtis Major is very small and quite hard to detect.

David,

Your Mars capture is a very good one.
How nice it would be for you if would climb a little higher in the sky so you were not fighting all that atmosphere.

David,

An excellent observation of Mars. You recorded Syrtis Major and Utopia nicely. The North Polar Cap (NPC) is small. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Regards,
Carlos
