About this image

These are a selection of my better images of Mars from two nights after it passed opposition (8th October 2020) through to 15th January 2021.    It gives a good representation of the rapid change in the size of Mars as seen from Earth over this period. The common denominators in all these images are the camera and telescope used.   The camera was only acquired in September and used as my primary camera on Mars from late September onwards.
