These are six images of Mars produced in Aberrator from six different popular scopes in perfect seeing at 400x. which one is close to yours?

I'll post the type of scopes later smile.

First night out with Mars last week I got about a 3.5.
Two nights ago I got a 5. Last night a 6. See a pattern here? This in an 8" f/6 Discovery. If only the seeing would settle down :-(

update, last night it was between 4 and 5 :-)

Would there have been material difference, if you had included 8" SCT, plus 6", 11" and 14" Newts in the mix? Does Aberrator really care :-)
