Mars under what seemed like quite bad seeing at the time but the result is better than I expected. Noticeably much colder than my previous observation and the scope rapidly dewed up. I used 3 minutes of IR and 2 minutes of RGB. I used 10ms for all channels and adjusted the gain for about 2/3 range on the FireCapture histogram.
