Well, today, December the 1st, Mars finally diminishes to less than 15 arc seconds. Last night I got a sharp 360x on Mars with my 150mm Newtonian. I could see that the dust storm is still a bit active. Albedo features were still quite visible though, as were limb clouds, the southern polar cap and some of the northern polar hood. The phase was easily seen and the limb was razor sharp. The seeing was well above average.
