This is a short seven-minute sequence of Mars derotated to 01:13,  I was imaging Mars at intervals throughout the night of 27-28 September until not long after this sequence cloud gradually rolled in and obscured the view.   Although some of the earlier images were reasonable this set of images was the clearest of the night.  It has taken a while, but I am now beginning to get to grips with the best settings to use for my latest planetary camera.
