I took 2400 or so frames in 2.5 minutes with a 28” Starstructure, 2X televue Barlow and zwo asi120mc

at 40 microseconds......seeing probably 6/10 but Mars was 77 degrees above the horizon!

Aligned and stacked in Registax6, no other processing.....

Good start. Perhaps a bit more processing to brighten the image and sharpen a little. Colours look to be on the right track.
Lucky you with Mars getting to 77 degrees elevation. Mars struggles to about 44 degrees here but then we have had Jupiter and Saturn passing over at about 78 degrees so can’t complain!

Very nice image!

Lots of detail.

 

Where in the Everglades did you set up your scope?

When temperatures go down a little bit  I am planning on going to either Pa-hay-okee or Mahogany Hammock on a moonless night.
