Planet Mars from early attempt 2005

I used an ITE deep sky pro security camera to capture this picture of Mars in 2005. Coupled the camera to Orion 4.5 inch reflector telescope 🔭 recording onto a VCR tape. Later transferred to hard disk. Man, it was a lot of effort 👌. The icing on the cake was the polar ice 🧊 cap.
Mars was in opposition and pretty close to the earth 🌎 in 2005.

Gardening and moss

A simple mossy brick in the flower bed is pure pleasure.
