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!!!

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 memory
without them we equal nothing
And all I can see is the place I wanna be
Suddenly my life was so free
Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground
their echoes are reaching my ears
Nights coming fast, suns going down" - A7x
