Mars @ 5.8 arc seconds.

Syrtis Major & Sinus Sabaeus, with the posibility of Argyre rather than Hellas giving the illusion of a south polar cap, though I'm happy to be corrected if anyone has a sketch or image showing a clearer view. My seeing was deteriorating while making this sketch!

Great drawing Mike, that’s how I saw it too in the DZ but it was not quite as well defined.

Thanks David.

That's the beauty of sketching, as you can leave out the turbulent atmosphere.  Plus it's an accumulation of detail over time, so invariably gives the impression of a better eyepiece view than it actually was. Having said that, it was a reasonably good view last night, until the winds started.
