First Shot of Mars

It was a little smoggy out but I wanted to get Mars while it was still "big".  It appears bigger because it is closer to Earth right now.  I wanted to get the shot using my 3x Barlow lens similar to what I did with Jupiter last month, unfortunately, however, I did not have time to focus it correctly as some clouds were moving in.
