Here is a report of mars performed on 7th april with the 127mm apo.
Sky conditions were limited,average transparency and seeing average some times good.
Confidence about the data collected needed almost perfect images that was not during the quarter hour open sky.
Anyway,the cloud hazze on the Solis Lacus area was still there but near the terminator.
On the limb sinus meridiani area seemed covered,also Mare Erythraeum partially only.
Difficult to say that if the 2 area are linked as the contrasted features were appearing still between.
I had no enough time for using the blue and the red filters for investigating more.
Difficult to say more,here on the site the mars opposition is becoming fading a lot due to the seeing still present
and the planet elevation not helping.

With reasonable Seeing I could aquire this IR-RGB image of Mars on April 7th. 
Solis Lacus just appearing upper right, 
NPH in the north (down) and Niliacus Lacus, even Tithonius Lacus still visible.
