Hi all,

I hope this finds you all well.

 

I have the pleasure to share with you what I have promised some two weeks ago. :-)

Three days ago I completed the FULL MAP of Mars. The map is composed by 15 captures acquired during the last month.

I will try to keep capturing Mars during and after the opposition for a while, hoping to further improve this map, but I think it is already good enough to present.

The following is a thumbnail of the full rotation of Mars (due to forum's policy cannot present it directly).

I could not upload the Hi-Res (1600x1600) due to its large size, so the link goes to a 700x700 version.

PLEASE CLICK on the following image to enjoy the animated GIF.

 

 

2022-10-27 to  2022-11-25, Animation of Mars rotation, C14 Edge, Barlow 2.1x, ASI290, 600x600 thumbnail.jpg

 

 

IF CLICKING on the thumbnail DOES NOT WORK, PLEASE CLICK on the LINK BELOW:

I hope you like them and you can enjoy them.

 

Best wishes,

Alexandros

it looks like an AKRO Agate marble! If you were to post two, one beginning slightly after the other, one could cross their eyes and see this with a 3D effect.

That is, by far, one of coolest things I've seen!! I must have spent almost two minutes straight watching the rotation!

Fantastic, watching the three dimensional effect of Olympus Mons rotating around was mind-blowing!
