Mars 21st September 2020 - best seeing yet

Recommended Posts

The seeing Gods were smiling last night and I had my best views of Mars so far this opposition and consequently my best Mars image ever at 42 degrees altitude. 

Lots of detail visible in the equatorial regions from Sinus Meridiani through Chryse to Aurorae Sinus. The blue mist on the bright limb that I saw on screen early in the session did not really show up after processing for some reason.

The next few months should give some great viewing of Mars, looking forward to it, weather permitting. It's been a while since we had a decent planetary view from the UK.
