    Oddly, I can see the "original" image set in the first post. Win 10, Google Chrome.

    The forum behaves in odd ways from time to time.

    At any rate, a nice session with the red planet, Shorty, and a fine finale with the excellent meal.

    The forum software was cutting edge in 1995! lol

    I've had at least three decent sessions with Mars now. It has been a bit of a disappointment this year, basically because of the storm. I was lucky with the weather on Tuesday and it's unlikely I'll get another prolonged observation session this year. So I'm pretty happy with Tuesday. And the steak & kidney suet pudding lol.

    Excellent Mars report!

    I always forget that you guys need to dig down in the muck for the planets as opposed to my neck breaking near zenith escapades with them.
    Thanks again for a well organized and presented report, always a pleasure reading them.

    Us South Africans like our pies as much as the Brits do, now you got me hungry too!

    Thanks KC.

    I don't know which is worse, neck breaking near zenith viewing, or barely above the horizon blobs of planets boiling away through the atmosphere! I've been recently experimenting using a reflex sight viewing in the Cassiopeia area (near the zenith at the moment). It's a good job I'm supple lol. I read somewhere that one of the explanations that Herschel may have missed some rather obvious objects is that his alt-az may have had some 'dead spots' when looking at the zenith.



    Perhaps he should have taken up yoga as well lol.

    There's nothing like a good steak and kidney pie or pudding.
