Mars Oct 3, 2020 CM 40
Good seeing, with moments of tantalizing yet elusive details. Normal for sketching Mars. Full moon 2.5 degrees from Mars. I’m still working on the relative darkness of the albedo markings. I’m pretty sure we see Solis Lacus (bottom finger in the left centre) to Sinus Meridiani (on the far right). Thank goodness for the Sky & Telescope Mars Profiler and the trusty Observer’s Handbook.
