Just before the arrival of clouds I got short view on Mars. Seeing was very bad, as last time. Most of the time I could not recognize Syrtis Major. In short moments one could hoverer put together even more albedo features:

Nice observation. I see that you were able to see SPC, something that eluded me last night. My observation was at 2105UT and seeing was bad. Instead of SPC, there was some undefined brightening.

In my case, all albedo features were quite undefined. I definitely saw something brighter at south pole but I don't recall anymore how intense it was. There was definitely some darker collar around it, may be this is the reason why it ended so bright in the sketch. There was also some brightening near north pole, this one was larger but with smaller contrast.
