Saturn and Mars

A few nights ago we were in one of our favourite places on the mountain for imaging planets. There was a slight calima so the air was dusty but we still enjoyed our time. There is a global dust storm covering Mars at the moment so not much detail is apparent, hopefully this will change soon as Mars is at its closest since 2003 and is very bright in the sky making it ideal for imaging and observing.
