The first album cover below shows Mars on Apr 21 2014 at 1:56 AM EDT. Note Acidalia Planitia in the top left section of the image; also note the cloudy area in the right side of the image; a couple of Tharsis volcano tops are shown rising above the cloud layer.
Seeing and transparency were both rated as 3/5 in the CSC in my area near the Chesapeake Bay in Baltimore County; elsewhere in Maryland seeing was rated as 4/5 by the CSC. Focusing was rather challenging because the correct point of focus varied from one second to the next.
I captured this image with a C11 SCT, a 2x barlow and an ASI 120MC CMOS astronomy camera.
Please click on any of the album cover images below to reach the entire collection of images for the planet or moon shown. For example clicking on the Jupiter album cover takes one to 3 separate collections of images captured between 2010 and 2014. Clicking on the 2012-2013 collection of images opens up every image I've taken of Jupiter between August 30 2012 and May 1 2013. Each of these images may be clicked on to reach a larger version of the image together with a more detailed description.
