Description

Finally have an image of Mars I feel comfortable with sharing.

Still not 100% happy with it ... must admit I find the processing for this planet more challenging! Seeing was good to excellent (Pickering scale = 8) so conditions were good, have a sneaking suspicion I didn't quite nail the focus.

Have posted two versions: a "softer" version along the lines of my typical processing flow, and a "sharper" version trying to tease out more detail. Interested to hear which you prefer (and any tips you may have for processing Mars images)!
