I’ve been trying so hard to take pictures of Mars as it approaches opposition. Literally every night has been cloud covered and/or rainy. I’ve waited two years for this alignment and I really hope I can get a chance. Meanwhile here’s whats happening in August.
Astrophotography is a difficult, expensive but challenging hobby of mine. Here is just a sample illustration of my planetary imaging abilities over the past two years. With Mars coming close to opposition, and so many planets visible these nights, I’m hoping to log some hours of quality imaging data soon.
