    I had an almost exceptionally clear night for the opposition (save for some brief passing cirrus clouds). Mars was brilliant and offered great detail. Mare Sirenum and Mare Cimmerium were easily visible. I could barely make out the south polar cap (it was easier using my #82 lt. blue filter). Here is an image from last night's data:
