MARS from Castro Valley
by Richard Crisp
Last night I was imaging from the backyard and was totally entranced
with the views of Mars through my TV101 with a 2xBarlow and an 8mm
eyepiece. The polar icecap was so prominent that at first glance it
appeared to be a defect in the optics. Upon closer inspection it was
clearly the icecap. Totally awesome. I could not keep my eyes off of it
to the point where I missed some routine attention needed at the imaging
gear. No big deal in the image gear (no I was not imaging Mars, that
will be another day).
Anyway it was wonderful to see the Red God of War so well.
