Hi all,

 

Here are Mars images from April 11. Quality looks much better after doing a more aggressive collimation. Naturally I want to get out tonight, but we have clouds!

Terrific result given how tiny Mars is right now.

It must be the first night of clouds in years where you live

Thanks. We have been getting those annoying late afternoon and early evening high clouds lately. No rain or anything, just blocking the sky. Hoping they stay away for a while. I have an inkling to try Jupiter tomorrow morning...smile.gif

Hi Paul,

 

Excellent results, I like your color image, it's resolution is very good considering that Mars distance from earth is over 170,000,000 miles!
