About this image

This is almost certainly the best image I've ever managed to take of Mars at only 9 arc seconds in diameter.   It was early in the evening, with fog and hazy cloud constantly getting in the way, but when I could see Mars it looked clear and steady in the images.  This is a de-rotated stack of my best videos taken over a 40minute time period.
