This past Thursday 10/8 Aldrich members Bruce Card, Len DiPinto, Kevin Boucher, Anton Grankin and his father, along with new member Tom Barthel was at Aldrich Observatory going for picture of Mars. Anton also went for both Jupiter and Saturn before they set behind the trees. Mars was excellently positioned for capture as this opposition not only has made the planet larger than usual, but also higher in altitude. This made for less atmosphere to shoot through which helped with the quality of photos. Unfortunately New England is often under the jet stream thus making for poor seeing.
Below are a number of shots captured by Aldrich members during this 2020 opposition.
