Seeing was not very good,strong jetstream here for most of the session with brief periods of improved seeing.
Mars is close to opposition now,
in this image we can see a very bright Hellas Basin at lower centre with the dark pattern of Syrtis Major to its north.

Mars at opposition. Things could have been so different,with the high expectations prior to the dust storm,
but it has nonetheless been fascinating watching as things unfolded. Even the recent Hubble image seemed somewhat subdued.
My respect to those fellow imagers that have conscientiously followed the amazing planetary trilogy over these last months.
Even with my unplanned and enforced layoff for a month,
I feel like I have run a few marathons. And there's still plenty to do in the coming months......

The dark spot that is at the lower left on the image of Mars is
Olympus Mons. The dust continues.

Very good seeing for this session of Mars,dust storm still cover the surface of the planet,
but many details are visible in the infrared filter(IR807).

Here is an obs made in poor to average conditions during opposition.

Difficult imaging session again :( but managed a couple of iR captures plus an rgb.
Created an r-rgb also to enhance the details somewhat - several craters can be discerned including Schiaparelli,
Schaerberle,Huygens,Schroeter & Antoniadi.
