long time no see!
most curious you couldn't spot the impact. I would have thought this should be possible.
if it was not visible in a 10" TMB, then it is unvisible for all amateurs ... you cannot beat a scope like TMB. (-:
congrats on the good seeing on mars! I will never forget our observation night! THAT was cool!

(East edge of Tucson) Switched to Mars and at dawn seeing improved and was able to make out dark markings and the North Polar Ice Cap through TMB 254 F/9 with 6mm Zeiss Abbe II eyepiece, and at times, with the TEC 200 Fl F/8 with 4mm Zeiss Abbe II. The North Polar Ice Cap was pretty good size.
