This may be my last image during this opposition due to new job commitments, but seeing and transparency were very good this morning, 7/10. Not since spring of '04 had both factors been equal.

Thanks to all. I dedicate this image to my former neighbor, Chuck, who died of a massive heart attack yesterday. He was 52. I used to share prints with him quite often after successful imaging sessions. He will be missed.

I have others from the session that I have not had time to work on yet. Will post final versions either here or on my website in a few days, hopefully. Some imaging was done at F60+ and they too appear to be coming out well. Will share as time permits.

Thanks again,

Hi Eric,

Very detailed image, I'm not sure but it looks like there may be some cloud detail, I hope you soon find the time to do some more imaging.

Nice image with fine detail Eric. Good to see you active again. I hope youll find some time to shoot Mars during October when its larger. This opposition is the best of the cycle for northern hemisphere observers.

Best Wishes
