The attached image was taken on my second night in Perth WA. I had some good seeing on my first night, the second even better. The attached image is probably my best to date. Again I dragged the C14 out to the back of the unit where we were staying to catch the sky between the back fence and the roof gutter. The image of Mars in the eyepiece was the steadiest I have ever seen it.
The image was recorded on the ASI290MM and I recorded luminance and RGB SER channels. The processing of the luminance channel came out extremely well. I have to thank Darryl and Pete on their advice in my previous post for managing ring artefacts during image processing. The artefacts however were relatively minor comparing to the images from the previous night.
On the image Olympus Mons is quite prominent and reasonable detail can be seen on Mare Sirenum. There are a number of craters visible but I have not attempted to identify them. Solis Planum can be seen coming into view. The north polar hood is a bit more dispersed than the previous night.
Thanks for looking. Cheers Brett.
