Summary:
I started observation
of Mars today. This is my primary purpose of using the telescope so that we can observe Mars as if we observe our blue planet from where we supposed to be. As our rotation comes to the end, Mars gets closer to earth so it will get bigger and bigger. I hope I can get clearer images of Mars in next few days. Also, Saturn was visible at this time.

Objects viewed:
Mars
Saturn

Problems encountered:
None

Post-Scriptum:
I attached trimmed photos of Mars and Saturn. If there is any chance I can get better images, please give me an advice. The each exposure time is 1/1000 and 1/125.
