Mars from 7 October 2020 with reasonable seeing

Recommended Posts

After two weeks of cloud and rain, I was really pleased to get out tonight to image Mars.  Seeing was reasonable too so managed to get some nice surface detail.  Imaged using an Altair GPCam3 290C and TEC140 with 2.5 barlow.  Processed with Autostakkert3 and Microsoft photo, best 5% of 4000 frames.  Thanks for looking.

The telescope I used is a TEC140.  It is quite a high end triplet refractor.  It is good for planetary imaging, particularly when the seeing is less than perfect, to extend the focal length I also used a GSO 2.5x barlow lens
