Mars last night

Pointed the scope to Mars last night after a run on Jupiter and Saturn. It cleared my house and the trees around midnight. Gee it's tiny.

I had to barlow further. Good thing is it's bright so in 180s I can get over 10000 subs at ~90fps. Which I think is why I'm struggling getting details with Saturn. I can only do ~20fps and only end up with 2000 subs to stack best case scenario. Anyway here's a first process. Probably went a little hard on it? Processing feedback welcome. Need to learn all this stuff

PS: Added animation here ~1.5h: http://www.astropic.net/astro/mars_anim.gif
