2018 Mars Imagery
October 6, 2018
I only made one attempt at imaging Mars during 2018. The two images below are from the same data set but with different processing. Data was captured using a Canon SL2 and a Celestron C6 SCT.
The following are a selection of images I've taken from most recent to oldest. Currently, all planetary images are taken through a Celestron C6 using a Canon SL2 DSLR camera. Data is processed using aPIPP to process and convert the raw camera video, AutoStakkert to stack the video frames, Registax to sharpen the image using wavelets, Pixelmator to adjust color, contrast, etc, and finally Topaz DeNoise (in recent images) to help remove lingering noise. I'm currently processing all data on a 2016 12" Macbook with PIPP, AutoStakkert, and Registax (which are PC programs) running on the Mac using WineBottler.
