Walking on the Moon

Wonderfull Mars from Last Night


Recommended Posts

HI Everyone,

I managed to get out last night and image Mars 20 hours before opposion and got a cracking view dispite the clouds and poor seeing.

Couldnt resist imaging it of course so here's some images for you rather happy with the results :clouds1:. Would of got more but for those pesky clouds...


I can see dust storms on these image's or at least thats what i think they are..

Here's a pic from September the 17th using the same setup and shows it's increase in size and the image is of the same part of Mars well nearly. I think my imaging got better :clouds1:.

james, those images, i hate you! :-)

I think i observed something like it myself. I did try to make a sketch, then it started to rain. That is another story.

Out at 4am i was last night barely a cloud in the skie and it rains!!!! i mean where in the name of wotsit did that some from.

So much i could have done. Wanted to zap the pieades as well, then perhpas saturn. blumming weather. Don;t you just wish you had a giant fan to blow all that away!
