Mars Astronomical Sketching during 2020 Opposition

Between September and October of this year (2020), the planet Mars will be large enough in the night sky to see with a telescope for astronomical sketching. During this period of time, I will attempt to make a series of astronomical sketches, scan them into Krita, and figure out how to make a map of Mars from the sketches. I am new to astronomical sketching, so I might need help figuring out how to merge the sketches into a map projection. If anyone else is interested, please feel free to participate.
