First clear night for some time - got in two hours of Mars with good seeing. I did two sketch takes. This was binoviewed through a 4" refractor between 166x and 230x. Mars was fairly close to zenith when I began and I was able to keep going into the early dawn. Polar cap quite small but distinct. Fun session!
