Re: Mars observations


Ian Stewart
 

Not great imaging weather with the full moon but I have been out with the new ES127 triplet. I have it on a Losmandy AZ8. Jupiter and Saturn have been great. Mars was a little mushy early in the evening but settles down nicely as it got higher. I can only get 225x with my eyepieces but still able to see some surface features and a glimpse at the polar cap once in awhile. I'll have to get a couple of filters and give those a try.
Cheers
Ian
