Description

In the calm moments the polar cap was visible as well as some brighter and darker regions on Mars but offen there was a high frequent seeing that destroyed the view. On the stacked image there is a dust storm in Solis Lacus visible. I combined two short videos with pipp and virtual dub to have about 7000 frames and I used 932. I tried to use an ADC but I am still not used to it so there is room for improvement.
Here is the firecapture log of the main video. (Unfortunately it is set to moon)
The second video has only 2000 frames.
