Last Thursday night I set up my 8-inch Celestron EdgeHD SCT in the driveway and proceeded to gather an hour's worth of video data of Mars. This image is a stack of 9,000 frames from an AVI file that contained nearly 50,000 frames at a resolution of 400X400 pixels. A ZWO 290MC camera, Atmospheric Dispersion Corrector, and an Antares 1.5X Barlow lens. The effective focal ratio was about F/15. The white spot at the bottom is the South Polar Cap, and the bright feature to the right is the volcano Olympus Mons. Towards the opposite limb is the Elysium plateau and Mons Elysium.
