About this image

This is a de-rotated image of Mars using infrared and colour data captured over a 20minute period in a gap in the weather before clouds reappeared.  My previous opportunity after a week's gap had been three days earlier but conditions were so poor that I ended up deleting all the data.   Mars was still quite jumpy but there were little moments when it was steadier.
