Mars still very distant and six months from opposition with easily seen albedos on its surface.

Wow! How do you do it? Last time I attempted Mars I got a red blob.

Fantastic.

Thanks Baz, The same day I was imaging Jupiter under optimum conditions I decided to grab couple of shots before sun rise.

Mars is only about 5" in size. That's fantastic detail for such a small ball. I don't see seeing like that here.
