I'm dialing in the setup one step at a time and hopefully improving my processing. This one definitely allowed for a lighter touch in post and I think it shows in the end result.

This will be my largest Mars for the year. It's all downhill from here! I cobbled this setup together just in time for opposition. At this point, I'll consider it a mission accomplished. Though I really think there is more capability hiding here. I will need to keep at it. I just hope I don't forget all I have learned as Mars, Saturn, and Jupiter slowly recede for the year.
