Dear Mr Murakami,
Please find attached photographs of Mars taken on 15 May.
The latter two were taken using narrow band filters. They both have a bandwidth of 40 nm and are centred on 450 nm and 400 nm respectively. More results are to follow.

Hi all, here's a Mars image from this morning in reasonable seeing. Olympus Mons is prominent at centre with the surrounding edges of the shield quite visible. No cloud is visible today over it's slopes. The three Tharsis volcanoes to it's right can be seen with a small amount of orographic cloud on their slopes. More cloud is seen around the limb, especially the setting limb at right and over the south polar hood at bottom. The north polar remnant is faintly visible at top left.

regards,

Hi Guys Here are some images of the solar activity in the second week in May. The 9th had a dedicated day to itself with the Transit of Mercury. A hard act to follow.

I have put together a gstory board g for the super spot AR2542 covering the 4th to the 9th incf. It was pretty spectacular in Ha too.

 AR2541 was also impressive in Ha, looking like a giant scorpion, see 7th 09:50ut, a wide shot of both.

Hi everyone, here is an image of Mars from this morning through a blue channel filter (Astrodon I-series). Overall the seeing was poor with high speed winds in the jetstream. Through this filter we can see clouds and some faint surface detail. Orographic cloud can be seen over Olympus Mons at centre and the three Tharsis volcanoes to it's right as well as other places including some very bright clouds on the setting limb at right.

 

The north pole is at top left and only partly visible while there is a lot of cloud over the south polar region at bottom right.

regards,

Hi all,

I note that we are at Ls152. In going through some of my old images, my first ever Mars dust storm "discovery" was Ls 153-155, June 30 to July 3 2014, shortly after I started "serious" imaging. So I guess we need to keep our eyes peeled from now oncc Attached a special composite, at least for me personally. It seems like a long time ago!

Hi all,

Mars early this morning. The seeing again was visually poor, making focussing difficult, but again, I was reasonably happy with the result. I also tried a modified colour adjustment. Fine cloud is visible between Syrtis Major and Elysium. There also seems to be cloud over the Dioscuria region, on the lower right limb. I changed from 4am(2.00UT) imaging to 2.00am(0.00UT) imaging a while back, but will shortly be changing my alarm to midnight(22.00UT) to try and still capture Mars at high elevation.

Best regards,

Olympus Mons is prominent in the centre, with cloud over the slopes. More cloud can be seen to the right over the Tharsis volcanoes, as well as to the south covering the south polar region. The north pole is at upper left, right on the limb and hard to see.  regards,

Hi Guys I was so lucky with the weather for the transit of Mercury . I set up under cloud in g just in case mode .g Maybe I could get a quick screen grab through the thinning cloud? I managed to get onto AR 2542 through the thin cloud that was streaming across the spot group like a waterfall. The cloud got thinner and thinner and less and less grainy with patches of blue. I saw a half disc first contact on screen through cloud and grabbed a Prt Scrn shot. The sky then cleared like magic with a few racers. The next hour twenty was a frantic session with White light, Ha and DSLR. The clouds then came back with holes in, so the next hour or so was a wait and hope session with occasional clear bits over the dome.

 

It turned out that the Ha avis suffered less processing anomalies from passing clouds than the lower contrast white light avis.

 

All in all I was a very happy Dave T. I hope you guys had as much fun.

Mars capture from yesterday morning under below average seeing.  Still quite a bit of light equatorial cloud between Elysium and Syrtis Major. It was a long day, starting with my Mars imaging at 2am and running through to a busy afternoon with the Mercury transit (I have attached two ingress images.

Dear Mr. Minami and Mr. Murakami,

Please find attached two observations of Mars I took on the 6th May for the CMO, around an hour apart.

The seeing was moderate for the first image but good for the second. Tharsis is visible, as well as several clouds throughout that region, particularly Olympus Mons. I also caught Solis Lacus and Tithonius Lacus setting.

The second image shows the clouds over the other Tharsis volcanoes much brighter than in the first image, which could be showing their formation as the volcanoes move towards evening.

 

Thank you and all the best,

Hi Guys the Octopus like ( in Ha ) and placid AR2533 was the main solar feature for the last week in April, It did not change shape much, so the white light images of it are a bit samey . The other smaller active regions made some attempt at putting on a bit of a show. AR2532 gets my vote as it approached the limb on the 27th, shown here North left.

Hi all,

Mars capture from this morning under reasonable seeing. The bright cloud near the NPC is still evident. I am away with the family for the weekend so will unfortunately not be submitting the next two days.

Best regards,

Hi all, here's an image of Mars from this morning in reasonable seeing. Syrtis Major can be seen rising at left with some cloud cover extending across the disk and some isolated clouds in the north. The north pole is getting harder to see at the top of this image while Elysium is the very bright feature at centre. A lot of cloud can be seen to the south (bottom).
regards,

Here is an image of Mars taken on the 1st May with a more traditional set-up of Astronomik RGB & CS IR filters and a mono camera. Conditions were poor, but improving towards the end of the session.

Hi all,

A Mars capture from this morning under average seeing conditions. Two features I note:

a) A hook shaped cloud over Syrtis Major. Would this be cloud on the flanks of Nili Patera?

b)The cloud in the Iaxartes region, near the NPC, which was visible in my image of 2 May, has developed into a very bright feature with a northerly extension, and what appears to have a small spot towards its centre (more easily seen in the red image).

Apologies for the over exposed red image.

Best regards,

Hi, all

My observing  has been a bit disrupted over the last week with my "retirement", with various functions and responsibilities, and also a trip down to my father in Durban over the weekend to celebrate his 91st birthday. I was up early this morning to capture Mars overhead and was rewarded with fairly good seeing, although heavy dew did interfere. Impressive clouds over Syrtis Major.

Best regards,

Hi all, here's an image of Mars taken under very good conditions. Syrtis Major can be seen in the middle of the image, with Hellas below it containing clouds. Elysium is setting at right, also covered in cloud.
cheers,
