Description

despite bad seeing conditons i decided to make an animation of the rotation of Mars. for this purpose I shot a 10 000 frame SER file every 15 minutes over 6hrs.

The result, is not quite the quality due to rather horrible seeing conditions. Nonetheless, the rotation of Mars is well captured. Better luck next time for better conditions. Now I just need to figure out how to get the most out of my current data. i hope it can turn out better than what I have at this momen.
