Dust storms on Mars and the extremely hot summer had prevented any decent imaging coming up to opposition, but on the 31st of July we had some rain and temperatures dropped.

The seeing was surprisingly good that night, so I gave it a go and this is the result. Taken with my 300P Dobsonian, ASI224MC with 4x PowerMate. Processed using Autostakkert and PainshopPro 2018 with various plug-ins.
