The sky conditions have degraded yet again, but last Sunday night I was able to grab these images of Mars with my ZWO 174MM camera and EFW-mini filter wheel. They were stacked from monochrome AVI files recorded at 400X400 pixel resolution through a LRGB filter set. Each channel was a stack of 2,000 frames. One image consists of a red, green and blue channel assembled into a RGB image, the other also has a luminance channel and assembled into a CMYK image. After stacking and sharpening in Autostakert and the Registax wavelets, post processing was carried out with Photoshop. The seeing was not very good and thus the sharpness is not nearly as good as it could have been.

I used my 8-inch Celestron EdgeHD SCT on an AVX mount for these photos.

I really like the intensity of the colors and how they contrasts with each other.
