Kon Posted December 10, 2022 Share Posted December 10, 2022 The seeing was decent last night. Again Mars was hard to focus despite the lack of jetstream and the frozen atmosphere. I think this is probably my best Mars capture this year. I did an experiment, inspired from Geof's @geoflewis post yesterday. I run my captures back to back with either 3ms or 6ms exposures (300 vs 160fps). I agree with Geof that the sorter exposure is giving better results, more details and I noticed some clouds developing in the Southern part (around 7-8 o'clock); in my case, I stacked more frames from the 3ms exposure as a result of the higher fps. I still want to try derotate some of my captures, it can wait for cloudy nights. Usual setup of 8" Dob, manual, asi462mc, 2.5x TV powermate. First one is 3ms and second at 5ms. The last two are 3ms and 5ms but resized 150%. 15 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
