A quick Mars from tonight 10.11.2020


Recommended Posts

Nice detail considering the conditions. That's not unlike what I saw visually last night around transit with my 150mm Newtonian at 225x and 281x. Especially with a polarising filter (not as large an image of course). Syrtis Major was just visible near the limb but not properly defined. The southern pole was quite visible however. The NPH clouds seemed easier to see. I'm pretty sure I could see the 'cleft' between the Tyrrhena Terra and the Hesperia Planum like in your picture. I think last night might be the last relatively decent view I'll get of Mars with the November weather. I've had forty two views of Mars with a telescope so far this year, starting with an early morning view on May the eleventh with my 72ED DS Pro.
