Mars from Greece, with my new ASI290MC

Recommended Posts

As promised yesterday, I stayed till late and imaged Mars. Seeing conditions were good, but were a bit worse than yesterday. Well, the planet is never easy - it is just 17 arcsec wide. Only good, at 02:45 the planet was high...

Taken with a 6 inch f/5 GSO Newtonian and a barlow lens x2,5. Programs used: Sharpcap, Autostakkert, IRIS, Astroart. I took 5 minute frames at 160 fps, and stacked the best 50%. Then, I split the stack into R, G, and B components, and I recreated a new stack, using the red channel as luminance.

Good image. Inspires me to have a crack at Mars although an aging DSLR isn’t the best camera for the job.
