Here's my second shot of Mars this opposition. As in the first version, this was taken with 2 barlows stacked to yield a focal length of 13400 mm (f/44.7)! The details match well to the Mars Previewer software. Seeing was slightly better than the 8/16 shot (7/10) and this was taken with Mars higher in altitude as well at 39 degrees in the south (over the house!). 55/100 images used.
