Mars - 04.11.2020 - 2052UT


Recommended Posts



Dusted off the C8 tonight and before the cloud rolled in finally managed to get some time on Mars whilst its still close, this was the last capture I did tonight. Despite firework smoke seeing wasn't too bad.
Martian poles showing nicely, (note smaller South pole is top larger North pole bottom) Syrtis Major (dark upside down L shaped central area) splitting the Arabia Terra to the right of it and the Elysium Planitia to the left.
