Description

Seeing was tough for Jupiter & Saturn, but it took a turn for the worse by the time I reached Mars. I only used the best 5% of frames, the lowest for any set of images since I started planetary imaging over six years ago. Thankfully, the IR image revealed that the "red amoeba" was actually Mars.

Notes:
Hellas Basin, which appears to be obscured by a bright dust cloud, is rotating into view alongside Syrtis Major to the north.
