Mars

Despite the terrible weather that has seemingly been affecting almost everyone recently, I was able to get a short glimpse of Mars (with binoculars) last night during a short gap in the clouds. I took a picture of both Mars and the Pleiades with my camera balanced with a mini tripod on a chair. I didn't get any more shots because I had spent ages playing about with my camera trying to get the correct setting.
