I'll admit I've ignored my favorite forum too long now and have been slowly trying to get back here more and more. In my absence have you guys forgotten about Mars or is it to low in the sky for you in Oz?

Makes me wish to be able to get out again ( likely
within 1 - 2 months from now )

Mars is starting to ride fairly high in the morning sky down here in South Oz Mike - maybe getting to around 50 degrees or so at opposition.....we should start targeting him soon and although I followed him down to sub 5" diameters from the last apparition I don't seem to have as much enthusiasm to start imaging it yet!
Maybe the 11000km+ trip for Jupiter recently or the allure of Saturn now, which I think rises to about 70 degrees - but we'll definitely start Mars imaging soon.....I do have another "life" but even I'm trying to remember what it is lately!
