21_11_00_Mars Syrtis Major



First process of a number of video clips taken on the 6th Nov 2020. 127mm Meade Apo x3 Televue Barlow QHY5-11 colour cam - .2min clip approx 5000 frames 15% stacked. Nice to capture Syrtis Major the classic Mars albedo feature. Quite noticeable how much smaller the polar cap is since first imaged in October.

Great, George! I noticed the polar cap was smaller, too. But Syrtis Major more than made up for it ;)

Yes Reggie, I thought Syrtis Major was very prominent this year.The last time I managed to image this feature was back in 2014.You really notice the passing of time when you have astronomy for a hobby.

Stay safe George
