Hello All, Tonight and hopefully tomorrow night I was planing to see Phobos and/or Deimos. I have two windows of opportunity tonight, at 20:50-21:20 AEST and 00:30-01:00 to see Phobos and tomorrow around 20:00 to see both Phobos and Deimos. I covered half of my Ethos eyepiece opening with electrical tape to put Mars behind and look for Phobos. The shield worked a charm, but still Phobos did not pop into view at all. Visually I was unsuccessful to see Phobos tonight but imaging at 1/15th second exposure I might have not only caught Phobos, but also Deimos coming around from the glare of Mars. The attached image was exposed one for Phobos, 1/15th sec with gain set at max gain and for Mars I exposed a 1/313th sec @ 60fps and no gain than combine both in photoshop. I'm hoping to give it another go at 00:30-01:00. Clear skies, MG
