Mars and Spica in the south

Last night I managed to get out imaging for the first time in over 2 months.  After an imaging session with the mini-WASP array (which I had almost forgotten how to use) I shut down the observatory and came outside for a last look at the evening’s sky in the south.  WOWSER!!  What a sight.  Blazing away in the south east above the mini-WASP dome was a beautiful colour-contrasting pair.  Bright red Mars and bright blue Spica.  I ran indoors to grab the Canon 5D MkII and a 28mm lens and captured the image below.  What a great way to finish off the evening 🙂
