Clavius 26-01-10

Here is my attempt at Clavius from last night. The seeing was rather poor and thin cloud kept on drifting by so much so I nearly gave up. Fortunately it cleared later so had a go at two more craters and my first RGB go at Mars. Maybe more of that later when I have processed them.

Its that arc of 6 craters of decreasing size within Clavius that I find quite fascinating. Is it a coincidence or just a random set of craters? I cannot think of any process that could cause that, so strongly suspect that it is just a random arrangement.

This was taken with a DMK21 through my 9.25" Celestron with a x2 barlow. Stacking with Registax5 and the resulting 4 images stitched using ICE.

Although it was very cold, the scope had white frost on it when I cleared away, it was good to get out.
