Mak 127 VS 10 Inch Dob on Mars tonight

Recommended Posts

Mars was bright and the moon was behind some trees so decided to get my Dob out and have a quick look at Mars using 23mm, 8mm and 7mm lens. Having waited a good 30 mins for the scope to cool down I still have to say I was disappointed. There appeared to be a flare effect around the Planet and the detail was poor. However I was determined to get a good look at Mars. Out came my Skywatcher 127 Mak with my binoviewers!! All I can say is WOW. Clear, Crisp image, lots of detail against an obvious pink background.  The Mak was the clear winner tonight for planetary observation.
