Telescope pictures and Mars polar caps

Above are video images made in Splash player, and below are captures in Sony Vegas 10.

 Mars has two permanent polar ice caps. In winter one of the poles, are in continuous darkness, cooling the surface and causing the deposit of 25-30% of the atmosphere as CO2 ice sheets (dry ice). When the poles are again exposed to sunlight, it creates enormous winds of 400 km / h, which shatter the frozen CO2 at the poles. These seasonal actions transport large amounts of dust and water vapor,  creating cirrus clouds.

 The polar ice caps at both poles consist primarily of water ice. Frozen carbon dioxide, accumulates as a relatively thin layer about one meter thick on the north pole in winter, while the south pole has a permanent ice cap of about eight meters thick.

 In the images of Mars here, we see only the northern ice cap (as seen in pictures, north is reversed as seen through the telescope).
To see the video in which I made these images visualize: Mars video.
