Details
Date Taken: 04/26/2014
Photographer: John Bartucci
Location: NE Ohio
Telescope: Orion SkyQuest XX16g GoTo Truss Tube Dobsonian Telescope
Other Camera: Imaging Source DBK21AU618
Processing: Firecapture, PIPP, Registax
Exposure: 1000x16.67s, 7.6ms exposure
Other Equipment Used: 2X Powermate
Notes: AVI captured in Firecapture, pre-processed in PIPP, stacked and processed in Registax. Conditions very poor - windy, passing clouds, seeing 1/5, 2/5 at best. XX16g GoTo works very well, put Mars in my finder w/o any star alignment. Kept Mars reasonably well-centered on the small CCD chip even with the 2X Powermate.
