Now seems to be the right time to look for Olympus Mons. I wonder if any out here have tried to observe it, successfully or otherwise. If so, what was the situation like? What scope and eyepieces did you use, what was the seeing and transparancy like, what magnification did you use, .. etc. What did you see, clouds or the actual volcano?
Mars rotates slightly slower (correction) then Earth on its axis, so does anyone know of a site that calculates Olympus Mons transit times? Normally Id check Stellarium for when Olympus Mons is visible but I wonder if there is an online calculator for Olympus Mons Transit times.
I'll be trying with my C11 on the next clear night.
