I happened to wake up around 5am and noticed Mars nice and high in the sky. A pleasant change from Jupiter and Saturn which barely rise above the hedge. This was the first time I had compiled an L-R-G-B image in Winjupos and it seemed to go quite well although I did realign the colours in Registax. Altogether well worth getting out of bed.
