Mars 22/8/03

Image of mars taken at about 1.30am on 22nd August, 2003, using an 8" Newtonian with 5x powermate and an unmodified Toucam Pro. Ian adds "[/I]Thought I'd say up until Mars cleared my neighbours tree (previously, I'd been imaging before Mars went behind it) and I was rewarded by a night of exceptional seeing. At 1.34am I captured the avi (about 1400 frames) and with very little processing produced this. I'm rather pleased with it."
Greg took the original and pulled out a little more detail using PhotoShop.
