Here is a Mars from last night in average seeing and (very) near infrared light. I started with Uranus (hence the IR610) around 10pm then slew to Mars and captured data until past midnight when I switched to visual. Unfortunately the seeing went south after midnight so the sharpest images were in the IR. I think the ASI462MC really shines in these marginal conditions with the IR filters. 

365mm Newtonian with ASI462MC+Baader IR610 and TV Powermate 5X @ 0.09"/pixel
