Good seeing

This time I spent a lot of time playing with the wavelet sharpening with Registax. Now I have a better understanding of the process next time when I get decent seeing. It is rare to get good seeing in my area, but I hope one day to get a better Mars picture. This is also my first picture using the new 5X focal extender.
