Visibility III / V
Mars directly from the home balcony across the sea, photographed through a thin flat mist / cloud of gauze. Seeing was not fussy, but with a slightly larger stack of images, however, the main features of the surface of Mars came to the fore.
Imaging was performed under prevailing conditions with a popular 742 nm IR emission filter. Stacking images (1089 pcs) and wavelet filtering with RegiStax6 and some histogram adjustment with Adobe Lightroom.
It’s been 15 years since the last shot, and the original tracking and focusing devices on the TAL-200K telescope would require, to put it mildly, a bit of maintenance - preferably perhaps even modernization.
