LtE in CMO #273

From K C PAU

. . . . . . .Dear Mr Minami,

Enclosed is the Mars image taken this morning in Hong Kong. The seeing was poor and I could not observe any feature on the surface of Mars except the polar cap and its surrounding. I wonder if the dust storm has occurred?

Dear Masatsugu,

These few days, the weather in Hong Kong became cloudy again. I enclosed some Mars images taken on 23 May 2003 Hong Kong time morning.

. . . . . . .Dear Masatsugu,

Thanks for your encouragement. Actually, on that morning, I took quite a number of avi clips for a short time interval of about 20 min. I will try to process all these clips to see the difference.

Again, the weather will be poor within this week in Hong Kong.

Dear Mr Minami,

This morning the sky was again clear but the transparency was still very hazy. I have taken Mars's images within these three days but I have no time to process them. I hope I can process them as soon as possible.

Enclosed is the photo taken this morning. I notice there is a bright spot in the SPC.

. . . . . . .Dear Minami,

Thank you for kind advice in your last e-mail. Actually, I am eager to wait for the IR block filter to come to solve the B-channel problem.

Enclosed is the Mars image taken this morning. The seeing again was very poor at my site.
