Thank you Carole. I was surprised by that as the planet had crossed the meridian by then and seeing was not any better, at least on the monitor. I suspect I got something better out of it as the videos were shorter (20k vs 30k frames) and maybe details smeared less when stacking.

Thank you Carole!  I put together an animation from the frames I took from 22:43 to  00:01.

The dreaded edge-rind effect became stronger and stronger since September.

More Mars in November:

3/11/20 - 21:55UT



And a blurb of Phobos and Deimos:



And the next day, 5 November, at the same time:



And what will possibly be the last hurrah of Mars this apparition as the weather deteriorates and planet shrinks, on 7 November at 20:58UT:

Very nice Roberto. Shame some deity can't peel the rind off these planets :wall:

Thank you!  I have not tried to remove the effect by processing but did read Martin Lewis' update on it here:  http://skyinspector.co.uk/mars-edge-artefact/  Some study!
