Mars 29/30th June fair seeing

Recommended Posts

SPX350, PGRFlea3, Baader RGB filters.  Mars f41.3 Saturn f34.5

We had nearly 3 weeks of rainy weather here in Brisbane but I got a couple of clear nights with JetStream very strong but seeing was not that bad.  Mars is getting a bit smaller with a strong phase developing.  I may get the weekend 2/3 July to take possibly my final Mars 2016 images.  I managed a GIF sequence of Mars as well as a quick Saturn but nothing special.

My scope only just cools down before I start to image using the mirror fan, it takes about 90mins.  I now image right after twilight ends.  I now have enough images of Mars to put a projection together showing 360 degrees.

Regards, John.
