Last night's view with my 180 Mak; ADC, ASI224MC, Baader 1.4x Barlow, 2000/10000 frames processed in Autostakkert and PS. The seeing was good, or a little better, although the gusts of wind proved a bit of a challenge. The N Polar haze and the bright haze patch on the SW limb were easily visible visually as well as on the image.

Wow! This is nice! Just wondering if it's really 1.4x? Seems to bigger. I used to own a make 180 before I swapped it in for the c11 :) I had about 2x barlow on my mak180 and I can't rember it getting this big. 

Anyway! Really nice image :)

I have used the figure from Baader, but I've not measured it. 

It may be an illusion - I've used a frame size of 640x480 to speed up sampling with my laptop to give a 12ms frame rate, which makes Mars look bigger than it is in pixel terms.

Truely awesome Chris, and an inspiration to others with modest apertures to have a go at grabbing a memorable image of Mars. 🏆
