Two drawings of Mars I made on 23rd September using the University of Leicester's Observatory with Dr Hugh Sasse.  Drawing 1 was made in reasonable conditions, however by the time of drawing 2 the seeing had started to fall off.
Points of interest include:
  • SPC now small and rather obscure.
  • Mare Chronium seen 
  • Electric and Eridania showing some brightness
  • Mare Cimmerium shows some interesting details in drawing 1.
  • Phlegra and Aetheria visible but not particularly notable.
  • Elysium seems to be rather dull
