Mars is at opposition this year, in just a few days actually. Unfortunately for my location (45 degrees North) the planet never rises above 20-21 degrees above horizon. This means that the atmospheric turbulence is the single greatest enemy for acquiring good views of the Red Planet. Besides this, a global storm is active in the martian atmosphere, so one can say that Mars is definitely keeping its secrets from me…

Despite all, I did manage to get one shot for now, showing some blurred details on the martian disc, details partly obscured by the martian dust.
