Yes, another Mars shot

This is probably my best Mars shot yet. Syrtis Major is clearly visible. Turbulence wasn't too bad, sky was clear but there was a little wind buffeting the scope at inconvienient times. Still, came out pretty well I think.

Now I’m just jealous. Tried last night but still had turbulence and clouds. I did get a little red ball, that count?
Little red balls certainly count. Several nights I was flat out getting anything sperical. Are you stacking multiple images for your shots? Even on this good night I had to discard at least a third of my shots. Check your gain too, gain settings that give me fantastic definition on the Moon wash out any detail on Mars.
Hmmmmm, gain...good point.
