This is my second attempt at imaging Mars. This was during opposition when the planet should have been at its best for imaging. However, it was at a very low altitude, around 10 degrees, consequently atmospheric dispersion has all but ruined the view. Nevertheless, I am still quite happy with this image and it was a fun challenge to use the marvellous old 10" Thomas Cooke refractor in the Marlborough College Blackett Observatory to capture it.
