This is going to be a real challenge for UK based images, Venus is pretty high though at the moment.

Ending on the 31st May is a bit early since Mars will be at the best position to image (and view) last week in July AND 1st week in August.

Ends on 31st July, so it will cover opposition of Mars.

What about processing time?

This evening I set up in the front garden in the hope of getting venus... it eventually appeared, and if I had moved the scope so it appeared to be pointing at the next door neighbour's front bedroom I might have had 10 minutes on the planet before the tree ate it.

Really annoying as it is fairly well up - tomorrow I might try driving to a flat field somewhere.

Same, image capture, processing, submission all within the dates. The submission folder closes at the end of the challenge period.
