CCD chip in Phillips Vesta Cam Pro
This is my first attempt
of this years apparition of Mars, now subtending 19.5 arcseconds.
Images were extracted with Registax from about a thousand separate
frames over a trio of 20 second recording times. This is about
as good seeing as we get here in Payson, at the foothills of
the Mogollon Rim.
