Mars November 12, 2020


Recommended Posts

Couldn't resist another imaging session with Mars as Syrtis Major was on major display, the sky was clear and still and Mars was at amazing altitude:

The south polar cap and north polar hood were visible also, as a number of albedo features.

 

To Mars!

Forcast for weekend here in UK not good, so don’t know the next chance I’ll get to view Mars as yet, but fingers crossed, miracles do sometimes happen! :)

Let's shoot for that miracle, Gus ;)  Sometimes, the best nights are work nights and the weekends are mush, lol! So what if I lose a little sleep, haha

Very nice image Reggie with lots of albedo detail and some cloud as well. Weather here has been a bit mixed so last imaging session was on the 6th November.  Tomorrow I will be sorting out my mini-rig in anticipation of the Leonid shower. I have noticed that my software defined radio has been picking up increased numbers of meteors over the last few days.  So fingers crossed for a clear night!

best regards George
