If it's still up there...

Can you grab another shot at F8 for 8sec at max zoom?

I wonder if it can come in any sharper and brighter.

Hi Lauren,

I tried F 8.0 and S 8 sec but it looked like a plain white dot. I preferred the "darker red ball" appearance as it is Mars after all

Hopefully it doesn't cloud up or rain here tonight, I'd like to get a look at it.

Of course, this being Tokyo, I doubt the smog will lift long enough to get a good view of it.

in the uk, look south at about 45deg (that from the horizon) you will no doubt have seen it already and not know it.

I tried last night to get some pics of it but it was way to cloudy outside to see it. I will try again tonight with my 750uz and tcon-17. Hopefully 646mm zoom will be enough to get something of it in the photo!

I'm not sure about this one.
I've just taken this picture.
15 sek exposure time, F8 with my A60, 3x opt. zoom.
Of course this is nothing to compare with koruvs shot!
I'm not even sure if it is mars.
On the lcd the star looked really reddish!
As you can see here, it doesn't look too red. But i think there's still some red left on it
However... I'm blind concerning the recognition of stars.. they all look so equal:
