Slowly Mars grows....hurry up! The real show is beginning, everything else (for us 'mortals') has just been warmup. I've had some good seeing for Mars, but being above 30 degrees helps a bunch! The biggest disappointment...annoyance with this image, is a linear artifact. It's not so bad in this image, but early processing it was way noticeable. I changed AP sizes, tried different AP patterns...I don't remember seeing anything like this before and have no clue why or what to do about it. Maybe it's just an illusion, that just looks linear. It's light, so I know it's not a canal!
