Mars between the fuzzies

With Mars decreasing in size, maybe it was time to get a different angle on the red planet. This is a widefield view of the planet on it’s patch of Pisces sky at December 20th. The whole field is filled with galaxies, some of which very very small.

The image displays a halo that results from bright Mars reflecting in the optics.

The exposure was limited to 27x10s and 7x30s at gain 0 with an ASI2600MC camera and an Esprit 120ED @ F5.5
