Seeing was decent this past Sunday, so I caught a few LRGB/IR sequences of Mars. I took a quick look and selected this one to process (resized X1.4 actual capture). They were all similar. Seeing has been poor this week, and the GFS model shows it to be poor until early next week, so limited planetary imaging for me.

Appreciate the comments fellows. I've been trying out various versions of a new planetary imaging train (see below). I think that I've almost got it worked out (it really helped this summer when Jupiter was low, and it always helps with the framing at long eFL).
