I got out just after sunset and caught the Jupiter double transit. I didn't realize it was happening until a few minutes beforehand. The scope really didn't have a chance to acclimate. The seeing was pretty bad anyway for the most part.
I took over 30,000 frames and stacked a very small portion. Thankfully those decent frames worked out somewhat okay. At least I can tell there's a transit going on and it's not just a blob, which were most of the frames.
The first Mars image was from a couple of nights ago. The second one was from tonight. In both cases the seeing also was not good. Lots of frames to chose from helped out again, at least in the first image. Although tonight's image was better than nothing at all.
I used a QHY462 color camera and mounted the Questar OTA on a Vixen GPDX mount due to the high winds tonight. Kept it more stable.
The seeing has been bad for a couple of weeks. Hopefully things will turn around before Mars gets too small.
After my initial post I noticed my images appeared to blow up in image scale for some reason, so I slightly downsized them. Another mystery...
Edit: The scale looks wrong again after posting. It still looked too big when viewing on my laptop. However, they seem ok on the Ipad (maybe smaller than normal). I can live with it for now.
