The self proclaimed 16 Year Old Astrofreak - Chris Todd - has posted an image of Mars into the NJ Night Sky forum.

Chris comments the image with:

So far I favor this camera over the DFK and I'm happy I bought it. It shows much more detail than I ever picked up with the DFK and if it weren't for the bad seeing, I'd have a pretty nice image on my hands. Hopefully I get some clear skies later this week and can try again but so far I'd recommend this camera to anyone on a budget looking to upgrade from their webcam or somebody just getting into imaging since the software (IC Capture[.AS]) is very easy to use.
