    Mars is unmistakable after midnight and into the morning sky as a brilliant ruddy beacon! Dark albedo and polar cap features are easily visible even through modest scopes (best with some good magnification). I nabbed this image before dawn prior to work (made me want to call in)!

    Looks good Reggie. I usually need about 200x to see anything on Mars.

    Wow nice, it looks like you have Syrtis Major and Mare Serpentis. Not 100% certain but it looks like it.
