Sorry for the edge effect Im not sure what is causing it. Perhaps I should have tried re focusing a bit but it looked as good as it was going to get. and at least this time someone else captured dust earlier on so dont go blaming me but I think thats a bunch of dust to the lower left . by the way i ddnt bother with deconvolution and i am concerned if its my scope im prety sure i checked colimatin and it happened on all my other mars images so far Jupiter came out well so did Saturn after the storm cloud passed over

 

   I decided to throw in my Jupiter here as well just to show at lest that came out good

<"bad edge effect"> Ferret - although that area around M. Tyrrehenum north-east of Hellas looks dusty in your images. (S.Major on the left hand limb just out of view, as is Hellas also)

 

But decent images! waytogo.gif waytogo.gif

thanks bq i didnt want to go over doing it. i thik its just going to be a bad seeing thing even though mars was so high up. my Saturns have not been coming out good at all aside from one and the jupiter was ok that i posted dave ad his scope made mine look stupid earlier on. he laughed as i posted an image of Jupiter minuits after i captured it

I’ve read elsewhere that a dust storm has kicked up. Sadly, the closer it gets the more likely this is.

While the "edge effect" is over my pay grade I can tell you that during most dust activity on Mars you will see a bright limb arc soon after the dust clouds are detected.  These limb arcs will linger for several days after the dust subsides.  The bright arc may enhance the "edge effect ring" as I understand the cause of it, but I'm not sure even what causes the effect..

 

Oh, forgot; the bright limb arc is an indication of dusty limb haze.

they could have come out a tad nicer but i was afraid of over doing it and messing with the rin effect perhaps i could crop it out and past the mars image over one of my lagoon nebulas oops i forgot i wanted to capture that but was to bussy messing with planets. i have a probem with my mirror its moving around since i removed the silicone so instead of simply swinging the scope around from eastern to western i just let it run all the way till jupiter was going down i wanted to get that red spot on the north eq band

thanks for the comments everyone. i double checked winjupos according to it i did this at 0830ish so that puts it at early morning so i guess its right. mars was around 15 arc seconds vs the 10 or 11 it is now also it was much better seeing last night it was belly dancing

Nice! Looks to be about late July 2018 right?

Don’t worry about Darryl - he is preoccupied right now with wrestling his rig onto the road!

The dust kinda ebbed and flowed a bit around opposition. Plus, depending on how you process, as the dust thins out you can show more or less surface detail. The more you crank up the red, the more surface detail you get. If you look at the ALPO images from the period you see extraordinary differences between images captured at the same time in their degree of redness and their surface detail.
