It's a nice start all the same and you've managed a fair bit of detail on the surface. I also like the shot you've added of the scope in your new Obs pointing at Mars.
Nicely done!
Cheers Mick,
I may have left my shop for such a little late as opposition draws nearer. Postal services are dragging the chain a bit.
Thanks for the comment and advice.
