Mars, November 25/26

Seeing predictions are a pain. I used a site called Meteoblue, which gave sub-arcsecond predictions for last night. However, when consulting the jetstream predictions (wind speed at 10km altitude), it was obvious that we were centered in the middle of the jetstream.

Only because Mars was at an altitude of 64° in transit, some details could be seen on screen, and in post-processing.

Mars, an attempt

Due to activities like building an observatory and starting a new job, my energy levels are not always up to the joy of planetary recordings late at night.

I could capture this Mars under bad seeing, while far from it ‘s highest point in the sky.
