Mars UTC

CM1: 75.00°

CLat: -21.70°

Description

My first attempt at Mars was cut short by clouds rolling in. However, they moved on as dawn started, so I quickly prepped the telescope and aimed at Mars as it soared overhead in the brightening sky. Despite the occasional thin cloud, seeing was excellent. Valles Marineris is at the central meridian.
