It is so sad to see the devastation occurring from the fires in the west.

Now we see that it has become a nationwide issue with the smoke.

If only we took take some of the rain from Sally and get it out west! 

 

I took a chance on Mars last night, and for the first time this year we had some good seeing in the northeast.

 

The globe on the right is my 10% of 2 minutes with ASI224 and 8" SCT at f/20Mars 91620 compare.jpg . The one on the left is the WinJupos generated image for the same time.

I just use AstroStakkert for the stacking and Registax for the wavelet processing.
