Subject: Mars Dec 21 and 22

 

Dear friends,

 

Four more image sets from two of the past few days. I also made a drawing which I will send in due course.

 

There isn't much detail on these but at least the storm is apparent and verifyingly Depressionis Hellesponticae is much darker now. With my scope I need better seeing to single out e.g. Sabaeus Sinus.

 

I will resume observations again Jan 5 or so, will be away on a trip till then.

 

All the best,

Subject: Mars Dec 21, 22 (CCD and drawing)

 

 

Since I am not sure that the Dec 21 and 22 observations reached you, I am resending them here together with a Dec 21 drawing.

 

There isn't much detail on these but at least the dust storm is apparent and verifyingly Depressionis Hellesponticae is much darker now. With my scope I need better seeing to single out e.g. Sabaeus Sinus.

Hi,

 

The two first image sets for 2004 are attached in the next mail; Jan 6 had very poor seeing and does not show much detail, but Jan 7 is better with a faint bluish NPH present.

 

Best wishes,
