MARS Images WebCam (August 2003)
by Christoph Petermann
Mars opposition is close, but I did not find much time to take the whole equipment outside. I made a whole bunch of AVI files, but they are almost the same. Seeing was VERY bad. The images are taken with the GP 102M 102mm/1000mm Refractor and 18mm eyepiece projection. Camera is the Philips ToUcam Pro.
This image shows Mars taken with 299 AVI images. I treated them with IRIS, which give the best result for me. Used were at last 75 images.

Here is a black and white image, consisting of 100 images. I used all 100 images, as the seeing was not too bad at that very moment.
