Mars from My Balcony with a Celestron CPC 800

Blogged by Aurélie Le Fort-Beunink on March 21, 2012 and tagged with Sample Images, Mars.

I am happy to share this image taken this week. I used a DBK 21AU618.AS camera, a CPC 800 scope, two Barlow lenses Astro-Physics Barcon (1.7 X) with a Celestron Ultima X2. 2500 Images taken and 2000 kept. Registax 6 and Photosphop editor help me to make the first version of this image. A friend of mine, Gilles Cohen, adds some wonderful PS treatments to shine the mars picture.
