Sounds like you had a nice time at the scope! The above looks very similar to what I saw (and felt) a few nights ago behind my scope. Cheers!
Loved the comment from your daughter - sounds like something mine would say. Haha! You had better get those pencils replaced!

I followed Mars from September when it was quite small using your Mewlon's little sister. Had some very good views all along the way and it seems to be getting smaller now faster than it got bigger.

Thanks! Wonderful report. Here I am out in the dark observing Mars with good result while I can hear our civilization and birds as Luna shines on me. I like that. No must do that or this or whatever, just enjoying the view in the eypiece.
By the way
The sketch is so fine!

"which had a couple of hours outside chilling to ambient before observing."

Thank you for the article. It is always nice to take a break from the eyepiece, and enjoy the nocturnal "goings on" in the immediate area, and then just relax for awhile and listen. Tim

Thank you for the fine report and the beautiful sketch. Where I live there’s not much traffic to hear except an occasional car out on the highway but the night birds sing all night. Sometimes I take a break from the eyepiece, relax in my lawn chair, fall asleep and wake up later under beautiful starlit skies. Not too bad!
