Taken in the early hours of 11th July while I was waiting to see if comet C/2020 F3 NEOWISE would rise high enough to see.  I had already had  a disappointing session on an unsteady Jupiter and Saturn so it was a surprise to find Mars realtively steady for a while.  This is a combination of a 642NM IR Pass filter with a RGB sequence, all taken at speeds between 200fps and 80fps with a stack of the best 20% of 6,000 frames of each filter.
