The first album cover below shows Mars on Apr 17 2014 at 2:15 AM EDT. Note Acidalia Planitia on the left side of the image extending to the limb of the planet. Also note Valles Marineris, the grand canyon system of Mars in the lower central portion of the image. The thin veil of white color extending over much of Amazonis Planitia on the right side of the image represents a wide distribution of clouds throughout the hemisphere.
Seeing and transparency were rated at 3/5 by the CSC.
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.
