The red planet Mars is hiding in Scorpio this morning, just 10 arc minutes from the 2.6 magnitude star Acrab (β1 Sco). The red light gives it away. It was a windy morning but the clouds and the dark blue sky background made a cool effect.The high ISO kinda ruins the color of Mars, so there is one at ISO 800 also, but then you can't see as many background stars.Single shot Canon T5i, ISO 3200, 300mm, f/5.6, 1.3 secSingle shot Canon T5i, ISO 800, 300mm, f/5.6, 1 secSingle shot Canon T5i, ISO 3200, 300mm, f/5.6, 1.3 sec
