Well, finally had some decent weather with average seeing. Mars was only 27.5 degrees above the horizon (at best, it only gets to 30 deg above horizon here in Montreal)

Image was taken with a 7" Meade Mak, a 1.6X Antares barlow through a Baader UV-IR cutoff filter and a Baader Contrast Boost filter using a Toucam Pro.

Image is stack of about 50 frames from 1 20 sec AVI @ 3fps.

Clear skies,
