Mars at 23.3 arc sec with Syrtis Major

Mars will Syrtis Major above and Hellas below on the right. The Opportunity rover is midway to the left in Meridiani. Seeing and transparency were only fair with some Saharan dust in the air here in Austin Texas. After midnight the wind died down a bit for this image. Mars is about 5% smaller than it was nine days ago when I made my last image.

Questar 1350/89 mm telescope with Dakin 2x Barlow and ZWO ASI224MC camera. Best 10% of 17097 taken 2018-08-16 05:08 UT. Stacked in AutoStakkert 3, Deconvolve
