Mars with an Orion 200mm F/4.9.

3x barlow

224mc

 

It seems a little soft but I'm still happy with the results of this Newtonian.

Thanks all.  It looks like Mars can handle quite a bit of processing so I pushed it a little harder.

The star test on this scope seems to be quite over/under corrected so I wasn't sure what kind of images it would produce.
