Mars Gain= 31 Exposure=0.015737

Uranus Gain=258 Exposure=0.058589

Thursday night here had some really good seeing so I decided to try some imaging again. The night was nearly a disaster when noticed my dew heater cables were unplugged when switching from Saturn to Mars! and the lens was full of dew. Explains why I could not get decent focus on Saturn 🙂  Once everything was dry again I began. I managed to image Olympus Mons on Mars this time so really happy. I then switched over to Uranus and after about 10 minutes of switching between eyepiece and camera I was amazed to see a bluish out of focus blob on the screen, tried focusing best I could and this is the result. I just need Neptune now for my set, can't wait!

Uranus at 200%, Mars at 100%
