Mars - angular diameter: 14.36" and 98.07% illuminated, April 4. 0:12 UT. The central meridian is 319.6.
This is a one frame image. The air turbulence this morning varied between moderate and strong and caused smearing at almost all the images. Mars is around 20 degrees above the horizon. When operating at "Focus mode" I did see some very sharp images but I was not luckey enough to get one of these.
April 5. 01:19 UT. The central meridian is 327.1. This is a four frame image. The air turbulence this morning varied between low and moderate.
