Tkane with a Celestron C-14 from my backyyard in Gilbert, Arizona. Seeing was about average this evening but there were moments of good seeing when the red channel was captured. Approx 2 weeks before opposition, Mars was just a fraction of an arc second smaller than it is currently at or near opposition.
