Like a lot of people around here, I seem to have caught a case of Martian fever, so with the skies finally forecast to be clear this morning I set the early alarm and headed out into the cold and dark. The seeing conditions were midway between excellent and terrible, I'll rate it about 3/5. This was my first time imaging Mars, so I spent the first few captures playing with the FC settings as the planet rose above the neighbour's roof, eventually settling on a gain setting of 230 with a 10 ms shutter speed. I also tried with gain 290 and a 5 ms shutter speed, but the resulting images from the video stream were virtually identical.
The last two videos 30 minutes apart produced the best images where the planet's altitude was about 45 and 50 degrees with the sun rising fast. The issue I have with getting a correct colour balance on Uranus and Neptune is obviously also an issue with Mars, but I'll cross that bridge later. I chose a colour balance that seems consistent with what everyone else is using, and put the two images together as an animation. I've displayed at 3x captured size (because it's pretty small otherwise), originally I thought the details on the disc were sharpening artifacts or dust motes, but since they appear to move with the animation I guess they are real. I don't like the bright rim at the top left of the planet, maybe that is a sharpening artifact.
Jupiter and Saturn were bright in the sky near dawn and despite their low altitude, were just too tempting to pass up. Shown at captured size, as they can't withstand any magnification due to the low quality of the frames.
