Jupiter & Mars 16/2

First time out with the scope tonight for about 10 days.

Had a good 15 mins each on Jupiter & Mars (from about 8pm).

First time I've seen the 4 Galilean moons all on one side, and appear like 2 groups of 2 - how often do they line up like that?

My first ever view of Mars was at the Belper open evening a few weeks back. Tonight was my first view of her from the back garden. Looked really nice and dead chuffed I could clearly make the polar cap at the top, even the wife was impressed!

All these firsts are making me thirsty lol!
