About this image

This image was taken in jumpy seeing conditions and it was only the height of Mars that let me capture any usable data.  Even so I had several attempts to process the files in Autostakkert  before getting the best result.  There is still some evidence of the poor conditions in the image with a touch of 'ringing' I couldn't process out but I was determined to post an image from this historic day when Perseverance landed on Mars.
