Mars came closest to Earth in late Dec 2007. The diameter of the planet currently appears quite small at about 15 arc seconds in diameter and must be observed at 300 to 400 times with a telescope. The images were made with an 8 inch Celestron and a 4X barlow connected with a Neximager. About 300 video frames were combined with Registax to average out atmospheric turbulance. The polar caps as well as thin clouds can be seen along with major surface markings.
