A handful of astroimagers on this planet are among the best at capturing planets in our solar system, and Don Parker of Coral Gables, Florida, is one of them.

Check out Don’s amazing image of Mars taken May 29, 2014, with his 14-inch SCT at f/23.8, ASI 120MM CCD camera, Astrodon filters, and composite exposures.

This is about as good as the Red Planet gets!

Congrats, Don!
