Just going to keep updating this throughout the apparition rather than keep putting new images up. Also marked out a few of the more interesting and well known features. I was delighted when I managed to find Olympus Mons although it seems to be brighter this year than in previous apparitions.
Seeing variations make a big difference to detail that can be seen as does my ability to process them. I put the first one in as that’s where I started this year and similar to the best I’d done with Mars before this year. I clearly had to up my game.
