Here's another image from my trip to Ballarat last weekend. (about 6 hours drive from home). This was from the same night of magical seeing as the previous post.

Mars was only about 31 degrees above the horizon and 2 hours past transit. The air was incredibly still and transparent.


10" f/6 newtonian w/ 5x powermate and extension tube
for effective 8x (f/48)

Dragonfly Express camera + RGB filters and filter wheel.
Stacked approx 1500 frames in each colour

Images resampled to 150% for processing

regards, Anthony

While we're at it, heres another image from almost exactly 1 hour later. Mars was dipping below 30 degrees but the air was completely still.
