I know, I'm letting you all down with this image wink.gif , but there was a huge swath of white (in Windy) overhead yesterday, but Meteoblue said...go ahead, try it! I actually talked myself out of imaging Saturday, thinking...same face, worse seeing, better seeing predicted tomorrow! So, I hauled myself out there, hoping for the best, especially as the rest of the week looks to be a shutout! Details were very soft, but visible and focus was more intuition than anything.

I figure any time I get both horns of Gomer Sinus is a good night!

Good point! Also, getting over 300fps didn't hurt, giving Autostakkert more to work with. Then there's, Mars seems more resilient to poorer seeing.
