Mars with a CAT 5″ (2010-1-30) – Sketch by Oscar Ll. (Nickname: almach)

This is an example of how we can see these days Mars with a 5? telescope.

The real sketch is at bottom beside the magnification (250x, near the
limits of my telescope). It was made quickly with Photoshop. And only
for the beginners? this is more or less the size and details that you
can expect observing Mars with an aperture of 5?.

At the center, and very big, my sketch with a simple pencil.

And at the top a symbolic picture do it with my DBK21AU04.AS.
