Mars 28 September

Mars imaged last night with the C8 and Altair GPcam V2 mono and RGB filters. Imaged at 4000mm and enlarged 150%. After an unpromising start seeing became better than last time. 2000/8000 frames stacked and processed as RRGB. Time was 22.30 UT. https://cdn.astrobin.com/thumbs/v6M6nlfziyu8_1824x0_xTjz...

Mars again..

Mars imaged last night at 22.30 UT with the C8 and Altair GPcam V2 and RGB filters at 4000mm. 2000/10000 frames. Seeing was relatively poor compared to previous nights so I have not enlarged it this time. Even so it has come out better than I expected. It was wobbly jelly type of seeing.. :lol: :lol...

Mars - 1 September 2020

Mars last night with the C8 and Alair GPcam V2 mono and RGB filters. This best result comes from using the long pass red filter as luminance for RRGB. Imaged at f.20 and enlarged 200%. 2,500/10,000 frames stacked for each of RGB. ADC used. Mare Cimmerarium dominates the disc right now. https://cdn.a...

Re: Mars

Thanks David. The RGB was nowhere near as good as this from the OSC. I've a feeling there may have been some condensation on the filters; there was certainly a lot of moisture around. I'm very pleased with this image though.

Mars

Well I had a session with Mars this morning. Set the alarm for 2 AM. It was worth it though, I did some RGB but here is a quick process of the image I took with the Altair GPcam colour. Scope was the C8 at f.20 and I used an ADC. 2500/10000 frames stacked. Enlarged 200%. https://cdn.astrobin.com/thu...

Neowise close up.

Well this comet has certainly made me work hard for an image of it! This was again a lucky capture at 1.15 AM, just before the cloud moved in again. I really wanted several shots so I could do a stack and eliminate some of the noise, but I should be thankful I got just one. The comet was too dim/sky...
