Mars UTC

CM1: 225.70°

CLat: -19.20°

Description

Seeing was tough for Jupiter & Saturn, but it took a turn for the worse by the time I reached Mars. I only used the best 5% of frames, the lowest for any set of images since I started planetary imaging over six years ago.

Notes:

  • Hellas Basin, which appears to be obscured by a bright dust cloud, is rotating into view.
