My very first try at imaging Mars. For sure there is room for improvement. I'm all ears for suggestions and comments.

I took 10 000 frames of which 10% was stacked in autostakkert, further processing was done in lynkeos and photoshop.

i actually used only the same techniques i use for lunar imaging. but maybe there are a couple of other things I might want to read into.

Clear skies.
