Description

I captured Mars with 8 RGB runs of 4 minutes per colour channel with very good seeing. I integrated the best 3 RGB runs to produce this image.
Olympus Mons and the three Tharsis shield volcanoes can be seen prominently sitting proud of the dust . Valles Marineris can be just made out with dust pooling in its deep channels. There is a bright window in the otherwise dust encumbered south polar ice cap.
