Description

Ok, my first serious attempt at Mars (from that night of good seeing in Vienna City) using Astra Image for deconvolution and sharpening (trusted Registax always produced serious Gibbs' ringing) -- had to apply some additional vignetting to address the ringing to some extent for a more pleasing image. For the fun of it, there's a comparison with the CalSKY simulation of that night ... at least there are some similarities ;-)
