Steve, yes I also noted this - but due to the new joys of GoTo, it was unexpected. Last night I was out observing with my AT106 (EQ6 mounted). Sent the scope to M19, with intention of viewing three globulars in the same field (M19 6293 6284) and behold a bright "star" that should not be there! Did not take me long to realise Mars was in the 2.8 degree field.
