Mars 20th Feb 2010

Here's an IR, RGB from last night.

And some orographic clouds earlier. (taken with RGB, 16bit ser mode)
Seems to have a nicer tonal value than the image above that makes it look like a globe.

Vesta - minor planet

Vesta in supposed to be in this image somewhere... but I'm not sure where!
Should be about 2 o'clock to Algieba, Mag 6.1.

Celestron's The Sky.

Nothing in the blink comparator... I must be doing something wrong!

Close-up of the area.

Mars 10th Feb 2010 - Fair seeing.

Fairly good seeing tonight, although clouds stopped play soon after this last image.
C9.25, RGB filters, 5x TV Powermate, SKYnyx 2-0M.
I used the red again as the Lum channel.

Below is an IR synth Green, Blue image.

Mars 9th Feb 2010

The seeing was very hit and miss again last night, very difficult to focus.
I think it's because of the cold coming down from the North.
