I was able to get a few captures of Mars as the sun was coming up at 7am this morning. Seeing was maybe 3/5. Still so small. On the good side I was able to capture at 468 FPS.

Good start to your day and fine work, not a lot of large features apart from the cap when you captured so you have a good job with what was there!
