Mars & M22


It was a humid and cloudy dawn, when Mars approached the Messier 22 globular cluster. I had to hunt quickly the pair among clouds and I managed to take some series of photos about them.
The twilight finally cut off the observing and photographing. Before taking photos I looked up and watched this celestial pair using a 25 mm eyepiece (40X) and the sight was beautiful.
Mars had a strong reddish appearence, the M22 dimly loomed stand by. It was worth to get out of bed early… Mars’s movement of ten minutes can be seen on the image.
