Photograph of Mars in context of wide angle photo of surrounding sky (ranging from Pleiades left to great square of Pegasus right). The inset shows Mars taken with the relatively(!) modest equipment listed above, derived from AVI video sequence obtained by FireCapture and enhanced using AutoStakkert and Registax. By reference to images taken by others, Olympus Mons tentatively identified even in this small image?
