  1. ONE OF THE BEST VIEWS OF MARS I HAVE HAD DURING THIS PRESENT APPARITION . THE SEEING WAS UNUSUALLY GOOD ( ANT 2) AND STEADY.
  2. Another great sketch Mike. I went to bed relatively early last night at ( 12.40am ) and thus missed out on Mars, because I wanted to get up at 5 am to go deer watching. Cheers Chris.
  3. Very good effort indeed, and quite similar to my own quick sketch from the Worcs/Shropshire border around the same time. Cheers Chris.
  4. Beautiful sketch Mike. I also had probably my best view of this apparition but much later than you around 1am UT. I managed a quick sketch before the skies filled in once again during the early hours, which I hope to post in the next day or two. Best wishes Chris.
  5. Another excellent sketch and detailed observation.
  6. Hi David, nice observation, 274x mag produces a sizeable disc, also a bonus with a 100mm aperture. Like Mike, I have rarely benefitted from powers above 200x, and sometimes restricted to only 99x.
  7. Very good observation and sketch.
  8. Hi Mike, yet another fine sketch. I observed Mars with 130mm APO from 1.30am - 2.30am, much later than you. Unfortunately, the seeing deteriorated very early on and did not allow a sketch on this occasion.
  9. GREAT SKETCH MIKE, IT REMINDS ME OF RENDITIONS SUBMITTED BY FAMOUS OBSERVERS OF THE RECENT PAST, SUCH AS ANTONIADI, ( with a 830mm refractor) EVEN MORE WORTHY CONSIDERING THE SIZE OF YOUR SCOPE. CLEAR SKIES. CHRIS.
  10. A largely cloudy night with small breaks now and then, which provided a welcome opportunity to view a marvellous moonscape through my 130mm APO. Mars was also visible, albeit briefly, in the gaps and this allowed time for a quick sketch. In fact, the seeing was surprisingly good, although the northern hemisphere appeared rather bland and largely devoid of any features. Nevertheless a good night to see the red planet.
  11. A really lovely image. Well done.
  12. Hi Robertl, a really good representation of what was on view. Considering the relatively favourable declination of Mars at present, the seeing lately, at least in these parts, has been particularly disappointing!
  13. Yes I agree, an excellent result. I was observing Mars at the same time through my 130mm APO, and although the seeing was pretty poor, your sketch equates to more or less exactly what I could see.
