A night of great seeing resulted in one of my best overall images of Mars and my first-ever image of Olympus Mons! The south polar cap, Solis Lacus (the eye of Mars), Mare Sirenum, and Aonium Sinus were also on display.I was quite pleased and pleasantly surprised to capture Mons which I wasn't sure was possible without more aperture.
