Dear CMO,
Here is a Mars image from
09/28/2018 11:08:12 UT

Comments:
Better transparency this time comapred to the 23rd but quite turbulent jet stream conditions.
The mountains of Mitchell area can be seen but resolution is not great due to the seeing.

My 30th observation this season, all images were taken in a mobile setup (including Okinawa) with the C9.25 and I think it can't be beat if you have to transport the setup frequently.
Will use larger aperture in 2020.

best regards,

The very bright polar cap resulted in a rather dim looking planet.

Hi all,

Mars image set from 19 Sept.  Olympus Mons just rotating into view at lower left, and Elysium is seen as a small gbumph at lower right. M Sirenum and Cimmerium stretch across the upper section of the planet with Electris, Eridania and M Chronium further south.

 

The last week has seen strong evening winds that I think have been a factor in the very poor seeing conditions I have had. I am still working through data to see what I can pull out, but a number of the sessions were a write-off. Also still negatively affected by the polar edge artefact, which unfortunately destroys the polar detail.

Best regards, Clyde

Dear Masatsugu and Masami,

Attached is a set of images of Mars taken on September 19, 2018

Looks like cloudy skies here for the next few days but I hope to get some images for this apparition before Mars slips behind the trees in the backyard.

Best wishes,

Posting telescope/exposure/stacking information on the photo or message would sure add significant science to these images.

Very fine image....

Hi all,

This image is the best result ive obtained this apparition (that ive processed to date.) Very good resolution across the disk probably due to the Martian atmosphere being much clearer than a month ago.

Craters Galle and Douglass are seen either side of Argyre appearing as bright spots. You can also see clearly the significant albedo changes that have occurred compared to the pre-storm appearance of this hemisphere.

Gentlemen,

Average (3/5) seeing to start, improving to better than average (3/5 - 4/5) as the imaging session progressed.  Good transparency until clouds rolled in at 2:15UT. Local transit was at 1:31UT.  The "Mountains of Mitchel" are showing quite nicely.

 

Regards,

On the 10th and the 11th, conditions were better.
- On the 10th, the polar storm is clearly visible but above all, the animation reveals clearly no less than 3 faint white patch inside EZ
- On the 11th, despite quite correct conditions in IR, the animation is rather inconclusive.

Hi all,
Images taken under rather mediocre conditions, but the animation technique can bring nice surprises:
- On the 27th, a dark spot clearly rotates near polar region
- On the 7th, a light spot looks to be present in EZ but the animation is less clear. Maybe that spot can be found on a previous spot track.

Hi all, some images taken under correct conditions, revealing the
Mitchell mounts now detaching from the cap as the planet is at perihelion.

Due to an error of gain setting on the 10th,
Hellas is saturated, sorry...
