Hi guys, 

 

This is my first Mars with ASI120mm. I captured it on last night with good conditions. It's been a stressful week, so I decided to only capture this planet. And I like it:

See you!

Excellent image! I'm amazed you scaled it 300% and it still looks  sharp. Is your SW 200 a reflector? I assume it is...what it the focal ratio?

 

Thanks and CS!

 

John

Thanks! I think I really had a very good night, and maybe that's why 300% scaled has been that great. You're right, my telescope is a reflector (Sky watcher 200/1000). Firecapture has calculated a focal length of 3200mm, so asuming that's correct, it may be something like f/16. 

 

It's a pity I could not imaged any other planet!
