Another Mars via f/55 in my 8" avg seeing
I took 2min @ RGB every 15 min from 2300 to 0115 to make an animation of the rotation, but I think some of the frames are not very good when the seeing dipped to 4/10. This single capture might be near 6/10 but not by much. Capture details in the image.
Stay warm and don't be afraid of avg seeing in such a cold spell up here in the N. Hemi, Mars isn't going to get too much bigger!!!

- Loving husband, proud father, computer geek, astro freak, music lover, sports nut and general fun-loving guyI think I'm the kind of person who doesn't like strong opinions. It doesn't matter if I agree with your opinion or not, it's not factual, it never will be 100% factual and I don't care for it. That's probably why I hate politics.I've always loved facts, provable facts of nature and things concerning science.Over time, I found that most facts are mostly reference and it was the creation of and discovery of new things that intrigued me."A good friend once told me you are our memorywithout them we equal nothingAnd all I can see is the place I wanna beSuddenly my life was so freeLeaves at my feet, blown to the groundtheir echoes are reaching my earsNights coming fast, suns going down" - A7x
