It nevers fails - every time Mars reaches opposition the seeing tanks. Views with the 13mm Nagler and 10mm Pentax were pretty good. The baader contrast boost filter seems to work best on the Nagler but the Denkimier planet filter best on the Pentax. I have no idea how smaller fl Pentax is brighter than the Nagler but it is.
I had a tight 2 hour window last night at peak transit for average seeing and poor transparency and was able to capture 7 RGB runs stacking the best 5 50% sets in WJ. 90sec avis running 160fps with 290MM Astronomik filters and a 1.25x Vernonscope barlow at a fixed 60% histogram. No resizing or drizzling which never seems to work for my conditions. Hope you like it!
PS: Good luck seeing the rare Mars occulation on the night of Dec 7!
