Hi Folks, this is possibly my final post for this season, today I am off to my brother's farm to cart wheat for a month and it will be a somewhat smaller Mars when I get back. It has been a memorable planet season with fantastic images submitted by everyone. I am just glad the Mars storm came towards the end of the season and did not ruin the hi res images that were being posted around opposition.
I have managed to image Mars on 4 consecutive nights, on the west coast of Australia both Luke and I have been very fortunate to get some extremely steady skies. Not sure is it was pointed out by other contributors but on the 18th a bright spot appeared in the Juventae Chasma which was visible for 2 nights and on the 20th it disappeared.
Keep up the great imaging everyone.
