Martian Images taken 20 May 2003 at 18:18~18:39 GMT by Yukio MORITA.

  λ=188゚Ls,   (ω=088°- 092°W,   φ=19°S),   δ=11.1",   ι=43°
  Seeing: 2-3 /10. Taking at a break in the clouds.

  Because of the poor seeing, the images are poor. The R one shows Solis L but no particular bright area near the place.

Use is made of an f /7.7 Newtonian extended to f /50 having a 25 cm speculum equipped with an ST-5C (at -5゚C).

Image data are
    50 IR images each exposed with 0.5secs
    10 R + IR Rejection images each with 1 secs
    10 G + IR Rejection images each with 2 secs
    10 B + IR Rejection images each with 10 secs
Filters: Koh-Ei-Sha's interference RGB filter of Type 3.

The Morita Observatory is located (132.3°E, 34.3°N) at Hatsuka-ichi, Hiroshima, Japan.
