Thank you for sending the picture of you next to the Fukui Refractor (8" Refractor ?) obtained in 1954. Who would think this young observer would grow up to become of the greatest and dedicated Mars observers of all time. Your fellow countrymen are very fortunate to have you guiding them on observing the Red Planet.
The best of luck to you, your fellow recorders, and the OAA Mars Section. I hope that the current apparition of Mars to be our greatest yet!
