Mars and Saturn 5th May

Recommended Posts

SPX350 F41.3, PGRFlea3, Baader RGB filters.

Got another go with seeing above average.  Mars just would not settle, I was using the longest FL ever with the 5xPowerMate at 9x power increase of 14,500mm.  At this FL Mars brightness means it holds with no problem and does look very impressive.  I just need good-vgood seeing.

Saturn showing some banding and looking interesting in 685nm IR.

Regards, John.

That has to be one of the best images of Mars  I've ever seen! Nothing is over cooked and you've captured everything perfectly. Outstanding!!!!
