Mars, June 12-16, 2016



I finally enjoyed another night of reasonably good seeing and obtained the following two images of Mars with the AP-155 at f/28, with twin Barlows, the first in visible light the second through a Wratten #23 red filter to highlight the dark albedo features. Both were taken with the ZWO API 120MC webcam, and are stacks of approximately 15 of the best of 1500 AVI images. Processing in Registar and S-CS6.

The labels are as follow, South Pole SP, Valles Marinaris VM, and Acidalia Planitia AP. The Tharsis region is the huge volcanic uplift, which includes Olympus Mons.
