Description
This was a frozen night, following one month of bad weather. The anticyclon brought me good seeing, allowing me to take a good view of details in Syrtis Major, Sinus Sabaeus/Meridiani, and a haze appearing on the limb, as well as the north polar cap and the north polar hood breaking in Cydonia. Final image has been resized 150%.
