This is my first image of Mars taken on 6/2/01 showing quite a bit of surface features. These were also visible through the eyepiece and in fact, my sons called this 'planet X' from the visible markings! The image was taken in my backyard at f/20 with the MX7C on the 12"LX200. Exposure time was 0.06 seconds.
