  λ=268゚Ls,   (ω=121°W,   φ=19°S),   δ=21.6",   ι=23°

  Seeing 5 out of 10. A very quick observation. Cool, nice fall evening, hazy, thin clouds. First post Hurricane Isabel observation. Haven't pulled the 20-inch back out yet.
  Mostly observed with the w25 (red) filter. No apparent weather, nice detail in Solis Lacus. South Polar Cap was much brighter and more apparent then my last ob on 9/17. Just the start of seeing the phase on the following side. Center of Solis Lacus was the darkest marking and caught the see first. Very apparent. Almost striking how this drawing looks almost like a drawing of Jupiter!
