A sequence of images of the planet Mars taken by S*T*A*R member Gavin Warnes on December 29th 2007.  These images were taken over a two and a half hour period and show the planet rotating.  Mars rotates once every 24.6 hours - the featue called Syrtis major is coming into view.  These images were taken with an Imaging Source DMK 21AU04 USB video camera through a near infrared filter and a 6" homemade Newtonian telescope on a Losmandy GM8 mount .  The video was processed with Registax software.
