Images were taken using a ToUCam 840Pro camera on a 12-inch Newtonian telscope using eyepiece project at f/65. 700 color frames were combined and enhanced with Registax software to produce the image.
This image was recorded two days after my discovery image. It shows that the dust storm has spread further East across Iapygia Viridis, N. Hellas, and S. Mare Hadriacum. New dust cloud in Syrtis Major. Possible large cloud just East of SPC. This is fun! Jim Melka
