Mars was incredibly bright this night, at -2.6 magnitude, so I used two moon filters to dim the light. The magenta and #25 red filters were helpful in bringing out details. This is one of seven drawings I've made during this opposition. I'm hoping to combine them into a composite picture, with color.

I used a 2B pencil on a Canson drawing pad. The drawing was processed using GIMP 2.8 software.

Thanks Roy!

 

Fran & I had a look a few days ago but our view was not as clear as this.
