Mars 3rd Jan 2010

Mars from a very cold last night. The two on the left are using the 5x TV Powermate and the one on the right has a small extension tube to boost the image size.
Using C9.25 and RGB filters with an IR filter as the lum channel.
The seeing was average, but later it was worse.

The seeing got steadily worse later, so I packed up, just as well I was frozen!

As an off topic aside, I went to work today and was going around a very gentle bend in the road at about 20mph and my BMW did a complete 180 degree turn on some black ice!. Luckily there were no other cars around at the time. :-0
