Equipment:

Meade 8in SCT on LXD75 with DMK21AU04

Description:

My best images yet of Mars as it gets closer and closer to Earth. You can really tell the terminator is quickly moving across the planet and almost the entire planet is illuminated now. I forgot to let my 4x barlow cool down so the first image is not as sharp as the 2nd and 3rd as it cooled. The last image is also a bit blurry due to Mars starting to drop in the sky.
