    Description

    Mars in good seeing. Last night, I was waiting for mars to clear trees and by about 2:30 AM, it was at a good height (30 degrees) and seeing improved.
    It was easy to hit 160 FPS with 275 gain keeping it nice and smooth. This is 12% stack of 31.5K frames.

    Stacked using Autostakker 3 with multi scale AP.
    Wavelets in Registax6, Secondary deconvolution in Pixinsight and finished in Photoshop.
    50% blend of Topaz Sharpen AI.
