Subject: Mars: First webcam result
Here’s my first attempt at Mars with the ToUcam on the C-14. Projection with Barlow to f/28, composite of 900 frames, each with a 1/100-second exposure at 15 frames per second. Wavelet processing with Registax. Transparency was excellent this morning, seeing 7/10 with very heavy dewfall. Note detachment of Mountains of Mitchell from SPC.
With decent seeing this was really quite easy! Not a work of art to be sure, but a very satisfying first attempt that really mimics the eyepiece impression. I’m hooked!
