Hi Sonia,

I have managed to image Mars a few times during October/November with my SkyWatcher 130m and Philips Toucam Pro II WebCam.

Have a look at the images on my website, see what you think! [:)]

Pretty impressed Steve. Mars is certainly not the easiest of planets to capture detail on at the best of times. Well done.
