Another excellent observation Lee. I'm somewhat reassured that I'm not the only one seeing martian canals.I think the one you've drawn extending from Margaretifer northwards is called Indus. :thumbsup:

I'm really pleased you said that, I've been looking at that thinking I must've not seen it correctly. It was the part of the sketch that was casting doubt in my mind as I couldn't see anything obvious from the maps I looked at.

It's good to look at old drawings by Schiaparalli and many others who also saw these dark linear features (not Lowell). What's remarkable is that many of these old but excellent observations were made using large aperture scopes, but these features appear with careful observation even in smaller apertures like ours.
