Description

Here at the North latitudes we cannot enjoy Mars opposition properly due to low altitude of the planet. So we decided to use benefits of the modern technology for remote imaging.

Many thanks to Chilescope team for providing such a brilliant opportunity to operate 1 m telescope!

Global dust storm is in progress. Such prominent albedo features as Syrtis Major and Hellas basin are hardly visible through the dust. South polar cap is also affected. Will see what happens in near future...

Seeing was quite reasonable, about 6/10.

This image is a result of our joined efforts with Astronominsk team.
