Imagen de Marte tomada desde Ohio, Estados Unidos

The Planet Mars on 06-21-2016. I captured it while Syrtis Major Planum & Utopia Rupes were easily visible from my backyard Observatory in Dayton. We finally had above average seeing. Every 26 Months Mars gets close to Earth and provides Awesome views of its surface through small telescopes. Mars Reached Opposition on Sunday May 22, 2016 at 07:10 EDT, or 11:10 UTC, and it will be at its largest (18.4”) across for this Opposition. This is why I love to view and image Mars, it is the only planet that you can see the surface details in a telescope. All other planets you would be looking at cloud tops,  except Mercury, no clouds, but is a real challenge as it never gets far from the Sun or high enough off the horizon to get decent surface details from small telescopes on Earth. At the top or North end you see a large darker area this is Utopia Planitia, and the Little dark island  just south of it is Utopia Rupes. Clouds gathering down by the Southern Ice cap, and some faint clouds at the northern pole as well. Captured on 06-21-2016  @ 02:17 U.T. or 10:17pm EST from my Backyard Observatory in Dayton, Ohio. C8 (2000mm) Telescope & QHY5IIL CCD camera, 2x Barlow, 3000 frames RGB,  Registax6, Maxim DL, & Adobe CS2015.
