Mars 2020-09-01, my first seeing

Recommended Posts

My first view of Mars through my telescope from the back garden. 

There were quite a few wispy clouds about that resulted in shimmering orange mess from time to time. Between those were some nice views through my old second hand c8.

After missing about with a few filters, I settled on an orange one. The polar caps were clear, one larger than the other. Some of the larger features were also visible.

I must dig out my dew bands next time as things were just beginning to dew up when I finished. 

I had some nice views of Jupiter and Saturn before this and ended with Venus.

This sketch is back to front because of the diagonal.
