Thanks Reggie. The Sky at Night magazine mentioned it and I realised this is what we're seeing. With a later opposition this year the northern pole is approaching autumn/winter and so the northern hoodie is developing lol. Yeah, I'm pretty sure you've caught some of the hoodie on film (or the digital equivalent)! I was looking at Mars only about an hour ago, overall transparency wasn't brilliant, but I got 168x and 210x. Not bad for the 72mm Evostar. It's hardcore!
