imaged Mars (Etobicoke)

After collimating Manuel's Celestron 8-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope, we saw that Mars was up high. Through the eyepiece, I remarked that the seeing was surprisingly good. The ice cap was clearly visible. I could see maria and other features. Manuel bolted up the Imaging Source colour one-shot. I focused. He captured a bunch of frames.

The result after some quick processing in Registax was impressive.

I think his 'scope is working fine.
