Hi all,

 

Yesterday I've got very good seeing, and was very happy with it. But today the seeing was bad. Despite of that, I tried to create the animation of clouds movement from yesterday's and today's data.

Some movements of clouds can be seen, also Mars diameter became a bit bigger. And, of course, you can see the difference betweeen bad and good seeing lol.gif

Time of captures:

- 22.09.2020, 03:28 - 03:33 (Stacked17% of 15805).
- 23.09.2020, 04:06 - 04:11 (Stacked 17% of 16873).

Location: L'viv, Ukraine.
Equipment: Celestron C11, ASI385MC cam, IR/UV cut filter, 2.25x barlow, ZWO ADC. Captured using FireCapture 2.6, stacked in Autostakkert 3.0, processing in Registax6 and CS6. Resize 120%

Clever animation. You have matched the times spot on. Despite the poor seeing the animation certainly reveals the movement of the clouds. Well done.
Cheers Paul

It's interesting how the north polar hood has moved in one sol.

That's very cool. It's actually the first cloud animation I've seen on Mars.
