I've not been able to do much for months, this nasty stormy weather from the gulf around Florida and exhausting amount of tropical storms and hurricanes this year.
Anyhow, nothing special, but figured I'd share. We had a cloudy evening but was able to get a little sky time. My daughter (7) and I were looking at the solar system bodies in our sky tonight, including Jupiter, Saturn, the moon and finally Mars. We were able to observe mars for a while and finally I captured a little data on it in color to give us a reference frame to what we observed. We observed in a few different scope types and apertures to compare things. Seeing was average, so decent, but not as superb as it could be for Florida's typical evenings. Surprisingly we were able to see the ice cap in as small as an 80mm aperture. Our best view came from the C8 Edge with binoviewers.
