Had a great view of Mars last night at ~11.30pm. Best I've seen it so far this year I think. Sketch below.
I think the darker regions in the S are Mare Cimmerium, Mare Sirenum and Mare Chromium.
Could also clearly see the South Polar Cap and limb cloud at the following side of the planet.
I'm from Hungary. This is my first post. I am glad to be here.
Recently I'm trying to sketch some deep-sky objects. I've made this observation yesterday. Cygnus was near to the zenith and the sky was pretty dark.
NGC 7000 is one of my favourite target. I like to observe it with any telescopes, especially with RFTs and with UHC filter.
Please excuse my language errors.
