From the start of October to the 20th of November I've had 10 inches of rain,
and when it's not raining there's normally clouds. Combine that with being flat out
at work and it's been hard to get out. Plus my lawn has been a swamp lately.
Last night I had a go at Mars, not my favorite side but it was what was on offer and
the conditions weren't too bad.
I got to see just how low it is now, I've got a bush in the garden that's not very high
and it went behind that just when it was getting to it's maximum height. So I will need to
give that a bit of a trim for next time. Think Mars was a bit over 20 degrees.
I've done Venus higher than that! I don't have an ADC but maybe that would help for Mars now.
Hopefully get some good weather soon.

Welcome back and a great effort for 20 degrees. I'm surprised you got as good as you did without an ADC.

A good effort Nick & good to see you posting again!
I think you meant Mars is at about 30° elevation here! Then again, maybe it was still only rising & at about 20° when you took this image - in which case even more creditable without an ADC!

Between 1 and 2 am local time anyway.
