Wonder what type of mushroom it is...


Cool find regardless.

haha probably not...but you will be able to see loads of other cool stuff
You can see mars, but it will probably be a small red dot...but still pretty cool looking out into space me thinks.

I think if i had a telescope id be using it every night gazing at nebula, and the bigger planets in our solar system...ive never bought one because of the light pollution near me, i think id be lucky to see the moon haha


I will do whitelight photosphere solar with it once i save up for a Baader Herschel Wedge
(cant afford H-alpha or Calcium-k
)


Refractors are great for photography and solar. I will get a reflector later for larger apertures, probably a SCT


It's not Flo or ED lenses tho and not a doublet or triplet
way out of the price range lol. Will save up for a baader frings killer filter if the CA is noticable, will add motors to the mount later as funds allow, and so on


Just a lunar, planetary and solar scope, 1000m focal length, 120mm aperture. I paid a little more for the EQ5 over the EQ3-2 mounts, its not much more really, if you avoid their "packages" and piece it yourself using OTA and the mount options list on suppliers.

But solar is way overpriced lol

I will snap some milky ways in winter
clearer skies

I have zero light polution lol I am 1km up a mountain and my neighbours get around in helicopters lol My problem is CLOUDS, lots of clouds in summer, hence my focus on solar in summer lol

that's a hematite false flag mushroom, hybrid with annunaki.

That is erosion from sand being blown over them for millions of years


I understand about the erosion. It tends to erode smoothly with homogenous materials. What I'm talking about are the leaf shapes on the flat surface, mostly in the lower left corner of the image. Something that makes the rock non-homogenous. Looks like the last bits of fossilized leaves or short blades of grass. Pointy on one end, broader on the other.

Hey, that's that doomaflagie I lost off my chain saw last week! How did it get there?

Sorry, it was a straight-line and it was just layin' there.

It does look like something, not just another broken rock. Atmosphere, clouds, we are only missing one ingredient for it to be a mushroom... Sorry I did it again.

Better get a copyright on the name before Post or Kellogg does. We are all you witnesses for the date.

Damnit I did it again

hematite spheres......sorry not mushrooms


Considering Mars is derived from an iron oxide-rich regolith which gives it the red colouring we are all so familiar with.

Im pretty sure if these were colour images you would see they are not mushrooms but balls of rusty iron.

These little spheres are called blueberries by the scientists looking for them- They show evidence of water being present at some time. The more blueberries, higher the chances.

Man, last time I was diagnosed with balls of rusty iron, this hot intern spent a considerable amount of time trying to "polish" them back to their natural luster... She was mostly successful.

They show evidence of water being present at some time.


They more likely show evidence of electrical activity since these "blueberries" can be reproduced in a lab:





the plasma physicist CJ Ransom, of Vemasat Laboratories, had set up an experiment to test the electrical explanation of concretions and Martian blueberries. He obtained a quantity of hematite and blasted it with an electric arc. The results are seen in the right half of the image above. The embedded spheres created by the arc appear to replicate many of the features of the blueberries on Mars. No other laboratory process has achieved a similar result. It should encourage further experiments using higher energies.


This is the 'mainstream' guess:



Geologists surmised that they are Martian counterparts of terrestrial concretions, which are commonly believed to have formed through water-induced mineral leakage. But this only widens the mystery. Theories about the formative processes of concretions are little more than untested guesses. No geologist has seen a concretion being made or has made one in a laboratory—or has disproved a competing theory. (But geologists have shown that the more a guess is repeated, the more it’s apt to be called a fact.)

Mushrooms cannot grow under the conditions on mars....they need a moisture rich atmosphere, which mars has been lacking for some time


You're a bit behind the times mate...water has been admitted to be present on Mars in abundance (by NASA themselves no less) and not just confined to the polar regions in the form of ice either, but actual, bona fide *flowing*, salty water.

Where there's water, there's an exceedingly good reason to expect life to be present too. Sophisticated or advanced life is another matter, but life would be a pretty safe bet following the discovery of liquid water there.

And let's face it, if the compulsive liars at NASA themselves are admitting flowing water on Mars, it's another pretty safe bet as far as i'm concerned there's either present advanced life, or at least plenty of evidence that it was once there in the past.

It does indeed look like a sphere, and is probably one of the blueberries....

HOWEVER: If I were an astrobiologist, Fungus-like life would always be on the top of my list when analyzing potential data.

Fungus is amazing and extremely adaptable to conditions. Fungal life often has 1000's of sexes and mutates easily. Spores are some of the most resilient reproductive vessels on Earth.
It's even been hypothesized that fungus was not always native to Earth to begin with; possibly having arrived from space.

Those orbs look familiar, like something from an Ancient Tome that I came across in southern Israel. My mentor, The Ancient Master, has told me of "power sources" that allowed Mars to live without any natural substances like Earth has... these must be decayed and destroyed orbs of power... useless now.

Hope that clears things up for those confused.

Cheers,
Destiny Fulfilled.

I suppose I could settle for mushroom shaped blueberrys in this case, 'cos they ain't round.
And, as another poster noted, (blue shift) the background looks almost fossilized.

There's two of 'em in this pic

Well then you can't call it a mushroom then.

That's an earth word.

The Mars word for it is hematite spheres.



If you can't categorically prove it is a mushroom, then logic dictates you can't categorically prove it is not a mushroom either.

We also have hematite spheres on Earth, does that prove we don't have fungi too?
