[Edit:  click on the link to see the full size images.  CN downsized them, and quality is also lower.]  Good seeing continued in the mid-Atlantic through September 22, but then the smoke and haze came back.  The details here look almost identical to my image from Sept 21, so I don't think much if anything changed.  Same mid-day cloud forming over Arsia Mons.  C11 and ASI224.  Full details at the link.

Let me see if I have this right, 421fps x 60 x 30 = 757,800 frames!!!! Is that right? That's pretty hard core! Nice result though.

Yes!  It seems kind of insane when you do the math, doesn't it?  These high speed CMOS chips really have changed everything.
