Brace yourself for some truly terrible photos of Mars which you can find on my web site.
I’ve had these photos for quite some time and have been meaning to add them, partly tongue-in-cheek, and partly as a momento of my very first attempts at astrophotography with my XT10 telescope. I took these in December 2007 about a week after getting my brand new scope.
Considering that Mars was at its nearest position to Earth for quite a long time, these photos are truly criminal and just do not do Mars justice at all. Oh well, it was early days and I had a lot to learn about taking pictures with a telescope.
We all have to start somewhere.
