VeryBestMars 9min crop-

Night of the 9th October 2020. A clear night but unfortunately the Jet stream conspired to make images wobble like jelly on a plate! A stack of 9mins of RAW video clips. 127mm Meade Apo Refractor with 3x Barlow and QHY5-11 colour planetary camera. The best of a poor set of clips.

Great photo! Got some good detail there :)

 

Thanks Reggie. If the weather is ok I will have another go tonight and hopefully the upper atmosphere will be a bit more stable. Did you see the crescent Moon, Jupiter and Saturn altogether last night - quite beautiful.

Have you been able to capture some more images of Mars?

Best regards George

This is my latest image using the ZWO ASI224MC with my 180mm Mak. I'm real happy with it being able to image Olympus Mons! Solis Lacus, the "eye" is there on the left limb, the polar cap, and some cool dark albedo features in the southern hemisphere. Seeing is EVERYTHING. Best wishes with your future imaging and visual attempts with Mars!

Regards,

Reggie :)

Hi Reggie what a great image! Yes I can see the "eye" and Olympus Mons. Brilliant!

I was hoping to have another go tonight but the weather is currently poor. Wishing for a break in the cloud cover to move in from the west by evening. 

I agree with you, 'seeing' is definitely all when  imaging planets and the Moon.

I did see the beautiful conjunction of the moon, Saturn and Jupiter. I got a picture that I haven't uploaded yet. Mars, though, has been getting most of my attention these past few months, lol. Looking forward to "seeing" more of your images, George.

All the best,

Reggie
