  1. Aleksander,

    Beautiful sketch of Mars showing much detail. Clicking on this sketch to enlarge is especially helpful to see just how nice it is.

    Frank 🙂

  2. I loved this sketch, Aleksander; of all the sketches of Mars on ASOD recently, this is the one that most resembles the view I get through the eyepiece of my 6″ Dob.
    Great stuff!
