I don't do much lunar photography but Saturday morning I was imaging the Lunax X with my 12" LX 200. Just after putting the camera away I decided to look at the Moon through my piggybacked Brandon 94 apo and a 40mm Widefield eyepiece. To my surprise, there was Mars glowing off to the lower right of the Moon! Out came the imager and and I grabbed some AVIs of the event. Stitched them together in Photoshop - placing Mars closer to the Moon so the image size wouldn't have to be too large.

Clear, sunny skies.
