Well, Mars is in the limelight these days, as it should be. I had a good night of seeing through my 8" ES Firstlight at 333x and 400x. Fighting some clouds as the sky cleared into morning, but seeing was pretty nice. Thanks.

very nice work , thanks .


Thank you. With better seeing some softer contrast became easier to see. Slightly more detail. Wanna hit it again, my observing is a bit rusty. Wanna push deeper. Wish me luck. :lol:

Norme,

 

Your sketch of Mars looks very good. Your sketch is nice and bright just as Mars is with much detail. 

Well done.

 

Frank :)
