Haven't done a sketch in a while - here's Mars tonight at around 12:45am. Rough line sketch at eyepiece, redrawn. Detail was very low contrast and seeing wasn't all that good. Took a while before I tuned in to the subtle shading differences but the ice cap was quite clear from the start. Mars at 225x is still pretty small!

Cheers -
