I used a C11 SCT, a 3x barlow lens and an I-Nova PLA-Mx monochrome webcam on an Orion Sirius mount.
My photo shows the Syrtis Major and Terra Sabaea regions of Mars on Feb 3 2012. The dark color area extending across the equator on the left side of the image is Syrtis Major. Terra Sabaea is the elongated dark color area extending horizontally away from Syrtis Major toward the right side of the image.
