Mars Nov 2013

Last night I got up at 5.30am and when to the Lighthouse to prepare to shoot the comet, using a eyepiece projection technique , 13mm eyepiece that work well shooting Jupiter last week. Once I had the telescope 12", F4 Newtonian aligned and my laptop connected it was around 6.30pm, to make some time until 7.15am when I estimated Ison would appeared, I shoot Mars a couple of time changing ISO to acquire the correct image.

I used Topaz Detail3 to refine the photo, also Photoshop to complete the sharpness.
