  λ=246゚Ls,   (ω=111°W,   φ=19°S),   δ=25.0",   ι=8°

 Seeing 5 out of 10. Calm, warm, humid, no dew.
  South Polar Cap had much detail, even through the seeing was only average. Extention on the following side, break (Mt of Mitchell?) on the preceding side. Solas Lacus is clearly the treat here, almost too much detail to draw. Three next extensions connecting the "eye" with the "eyelid". Some very faint grey areas to the north with very difficult lighter areas that could be one of the volcanos, but it is difficult to tell. This was right at the very edge of detection during the moments of the best seeing.

43cm f /7.8 reflector, 260-480x

Bowie, MD USA.
