This is how it looked for me. No matter what I tried, Mars didn't appear in the photo though it was very clear to my naked eye and in the viewfinder. I guess perhaps it was just too small. So I've painted it in here, just how it looked. Maybe from further south they appeared closer together.

Simon, That's why I took two shots and merged them together - the moon was so bright - I think it was 1/500 and f16 @ ISO400 - whereas Mars was about 3 seconds!

It was too cloudy here at 9ish, but just like sara, around midnight-1am taking the dog out the cloud was thin enough to see both, mars was still close to the moon, it would have been a nice pic I think, but the cloud was moving so quickly and getting thicker that I wouldnt have had enough time to get set up, shame because for a few moments the moon was clearly visible but shrouded in cloud with a lovely glow and mars was in a clear patch, might have been enough natural filter to get a shot..  but I was too slow lol..  was nice to see though..

Had a perfect clear sky here - so where were the snow/sleet flurries coming from?  With the cold, the snow/sleet and the local copper chopper keep getting in the way I rapidly gave up trying to image the scene  :(
