That is pretty close! Did you post process the image?

I managed to finally get out and give my new (and your old?) MAK150 a play with last night. My best shot here...

Though I've completely forgotten the lesson you gave me on polar aligning. I did try the internet guides, but I think its simpler for someone to actually talk me through it on a real observing session.

I was just amazed with how close it is.

The  2nd S Wales Group star party at Pencelli in Brecon

We had to wait a long time for clear skies but at close to midnight on the last night they arrived and we had some great views into the early hours.

Thanks to Mr Flibble for organising everything and everyone else, including Dai and Paul who are not in the picture, thanks for your company for another great event- roll on next year.

Well, went out on the 17th evening for the first time since last may and did a quick take of M42, new scope, new Mount

Feel as if I have got back on the horse, as while I was outside got the buzz again.

Here is the Pic

Had to reduce the  quality to post it, but the main file was to big to post here

Got the dob out in the back garden last night for an hour with great views of Jupiter. Could make out the big red spot ( I think? ) and Also caught a quick glimpse of Mars, but a bit disappointed with the lack of detail as it just seemed a bit of a fuzz although that may be down to light pollution.

Will be the seeing and depending on what time you was observing Mars is still low for any decent viewing, Also don't try to over Power the Dob, sometimes a lower magnification will get better results than higher, so I would not go much below a 10m EP to see it, 

Another point is the longer you look at it, the more your eyes will see over time.

Mars is a tough one to observe but the dob should do a good job of it
