The sky was clearer and it was less windy then it has been for the past week (here in Eastern NC). I have a pre-edge SCT9.25, CGEM mount, 2x Barlow with a new ZWO ASI533MC camera. I roll the mount/scope out on my driveway; it stays assembled in an unheated garage, so it should be temperature stable. The 533 worked fine with ASIStudio Planetary capture collecting SER video's. I manually focus, by hand, so I took multiple videos at settings that looked best to me on screen. I use PIPP to convert SER to AVI with centering and cropping, Registax for align/stacking (this image is without drizzle and a little over 1000 frames) add wavelets (just run them up to 100% see what looks good) and then use Photoshop to 'adjust' the final result.
The attached image is from the last video taken around 10:30 pm. It looks to have the most detail of any Mars image I have taken. Is there a way to compare my image to what you should be seeing from my location and time using a Mars on-line map?
I have other videos to process, but I suspect this one will be the best of the crop.
Thanks for looking and any comments/suggestions are welcome.
