Mars 5th Dec 2009

It's early (in the morning), it's clear (in between the clouds)... and it's Mars!
5 x TV Powermate, RGB, SKYnyx 2-0M, C9.25.
The transparency along with the seeing was not very good, with gusty winds.

Below; enlarged 150% and colour tweaked.
You can just make out Elysium Mons the white smudge on the right close to the terminator.

Below is a CalSky ref.

5 minutes after taking this image, it started to rain... that's unusual!!
