The early session from last night.
I pushed the IR a bit to bring out some of the finer texture(most of which is “real”,based on comparing images over a short time period).
Comparing with Anthony Wesley’s IR image of earlier in the day,it appears that a lot of the most active dust regions are in the high southern latitudes.
I also note the light ring around Elysium.

Mars of 5 July 2018 under a very good seeing,it seems that the dust storm is calming,as clearly seen on the globe of Mars,
which is half lightening while the other half is still obscured,as well as the south polar cap.

Hi all,here's a colour image of Mars from this morning. Olympus Mons is visible at top left,
and further left we see the three Tharsis volcanoes all poking through the thick dust.
Dust covers most of the surface making it almost invisible.
The south polar cap at bottom shows a lot of dust-related features,
with raised dust clearly visible to the lower right of the image giving the terminator the characteristic wrinkled appearance.
There is also some hint of raised dust in the atmosphere on the right hand edge of the south polar cap.

The dust storms still dominate the planet.
