Mars 20th Sep

Recommended Posts

Mars imaged early morning on the 20th Sep.

Fair bit of wind which made things a bit jittery, and fast moving high cloud spoiled the seeing as the morning progressed.

Taken with my C11 at f/20 and ASI174MM.

Brilliant capture, well done. I've a C11 XLT CT so hope to get some decent imaging on Mars. Epic fails so far. Big learning curve, lol.

Thanks. Learning curve - tell me about it!  I still haven't cracked how to get it in sharp focus. I tend to take loads of videos, refocussing each time, process the lot and choose the best 2 or 3. Nights of good seeing are obviously easier. This wasn't one of those!

Very nice detail and a good size too. Do you have any colour data to go with it?

No, this was just a single exposure with a mono camera without filtration.
