About this image

This is 20minutes of videos de-rotated to 19:08UT from 12th April.   I'm constantly amazed that it is still possible to capture an image of Mars now it is so tiny, just about 5 arc seconds in this image.  In my case only visible in the evening twilight before it passes behind my own house.
