These are two images of Mars taken approximately 90 minutes apart on a night of poor seeing and a jumpy Mars.   These images are my best derotated images from 50minutes of video sequences early in the evening and then 30minutes later on before cloud moved in.  The first image in particular still shows the area affected by the sandstorm upper left although the right hand second image shows a little more detail as Mars was somewhat higher by then.
