Conditions not quite so good this morning but still satisfactory.

A couple of outliers to the SPC.

Syrtis Major is just visible on the terminator. Above it the bright area is Hellas. Stretching centrally across the disk is Sinus Sabaeus terminating in the forked Sinus Meridiani. Deucalionis is the light streak above Sinus Sabaeus with Pandorae Fretum directly above that. Immediately to the right of Sinus Meridiani is Margaritifer Sinus and Mare Erythaeum above that.
