Morning Planets

I viewed Jupiter, Saturn and Mars high up this morning in a line of about 10 degrees. It appeared somewhat like an oversized Belt of Orion. Mercury was near the horizon. Good to see that they are back.

Mars is showing its gibbious shape with my Vixed 81mm ED at 90x. Its nice to have a light scope at that time of the morning!

I am also enjoying these early morning views and watching the planetís ever changing positions.
