Subject:	Mars observations with ETX-70AT

I have read several comments here that seem to indicate that Mars is not
easily viewable with the ETX-70AT.  Just wanted to put in my 2 cents. 
Although my pictures aren't great (or representative of what I can
actually see), looking throught the ETX-70AT with a 2x barlow and 6mm or
4mm eyepiece I can just make out a white smudge that I'm assuming is one
of the ice caps.  No clear surface details are visible, but it is
certainly more than just a bright red dot. Not bad for the $300+ I spent
on the scope.
