Subject: Mars 2nd July

 

Attached is an image taken this morning at 17:00 UT. There appears to be an interesting 'patch' over Nilokeras (extending W?). Unfortunately, I was unable to image later due to heavy fog. I will process & send two other sets taken at about this CM for cross-reference purposes soon.

Regards

Dear Masatsugu

 

Unfortunately I have no observations for you today; too much heavy fog here to see anything! Hopefully others have managed a look? I will attempt to start early overnight if the weather cooperates.

 

Best regards

Dear Masatsugu

 

I tried to observe Mars at 13:02UT when it was about 10-12 deg. or so above my horizon and in cloud. Understandably, the result was not good. I managed a single file before heavier cloud obscured Mars completely. I have attached that image here, although I think that it may not be of much use. Visually, the result was even worse with Mars boiling nicely in the eyepiece! I have stayed up most of the night in the hope of the sky clearing, but it looks as if this will not happen. Maybe tomorrow.

 

Regards

Subject: Mars 8th July

 

Dear Masatsugu

 

Finally a clear night with at least fair seeing! Attached is a composite of two images from this morning showing a dusty/hazy Mars....This is a preliminary image - I will send another version later today.

Dear Masatsugu

 

Yes, I will try and squeeze some more out of the data. I will also add some images as a check for the ones I sent.

Subject: Re: RE:Mars 8th July - final

 

Dear Masatsugu

 

Sorry for the delay in sending you the final version of my images for the 8th July UT - they took a little longer to process than was expected.

 

Regards
