Description

Mars after opposition in average seeing. After a fortnight of clouds and rain, had to get out to image Mars before it starts shrinking...

Took runs of 20k frames from 21:43UT to 23:01UT (just before culmination when it clouded over) and worked on the last 4 sets to create this image by derotating those images in WinJupos.

300x300 ROI, 1.3ms, 224fps in AS!3 with the ASI462MC. Resampled 1.5x.

Mars at -2.4 magnitude and 21.4 arc-sec in size and 43 degrees altitude.
