Mars - 1 September 2020

Post by smerral »

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.

Absolutely cracking image. Must get myself a 6" reflector OTA. Bob

Looks really cool! I am never tired of being amazed at how technology is now developed and what we can learn with it. Space exploration is the most interesting and mysterious business. Who knows what is there in the depths of infinity?
