Mars 30th July @3am


Recommended Posts

I was out this morning doing some planetary imaging. The seeing was very good with stable atmosphere. Mars was not a blinking like a disco ball so some nice details are coming through. 8" Dob, manual tracking, asi462mc, 2x barlow. PIPP, Autostakert, Registax (I think I finally got the hand of it) and final touches in Gimp. The last image is my son's colour rendition since he wanted it to be redder 😀.

Excellent images!

I do like the way you have processed the image.

Thanks. I prefer the more natural look than pushing too much.

I agree it was very good this morning. Mars usually looks like a disco ball . I was getting tired to let it rise more.

Considering the angular size, those images are very nice indeed. 

I am pleased with the result and it is giving me confidence for later in the year.

Thanks, quite pleased with the result, considering it was still low in the sky.
