The skies were clear most of the night, and I was able to capture a number of video clips with a web cam. This is one of several images taken around 2:30 a.m. local time. South is up in this image.

This image of Mars was taken from my backyard in Scottsdale, Arizona, using a ToUcam web cam on a FCT-150 refractor with a Televue 4x PowerMate. The focal length was about f28. The images were aligned and stacked with Registax.
