Mars at my location is only 31 degrees in altitude
at this time and will only reach 41 degrees at
opposition (Gosh I wish it was higher in the
North hemisphere )
I took this image on May 22 2003 , it is a stack
of 448 images from 850 .

Very nice indeed!! At my location, Mars will get to 26 degrees in alt... I WISH I was at your location. Did some imaging last weekend and all I saw was mush mixed with more mush.

Keep these beauties coming as it gets bigger and bigger!
