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.

Seeing 3 out of 10. Very cool (frost warnings are out), crisp, very transparent. Ever since cold fronts started to move through the area, the seeing has been awlful. At least 30 degree deltas between day and night now. Difficult observation, low power only. White light and W25 (red). South Polar Cap small, not oval in shape. A small area of brightening in both white and red light on preceding northern limb. Possible North Polar Hood. Very light surface detail. Disk size has really shrunk.

Seeing 4 out of 10, but moments
of 6 and 7 out of 10. Pretty unstable air.
Warmer, no wind, very calm. Temps in
the 60s. Mars was very close to the Moon. Much detail
seen in the moments of good seeing. Most note worthy
is the brightness of
