After some discussion and helpful feedback from my planetary imaging mentor and BAA member Dave Tyler (thanks Dave) over the last couple of days, I decided to completely reprocess my Mars data from 8 October. I've dialled back the sharpening a good deal and resisted the temptation to mess with the colours to make Mars look red. Also with 90 mins of video data captured, I decided to process that as 3 separate images rather than throwing everything into the same bucket. The attached composite image presents the resulting 3 slightly different aspects of Mars annotated with respective time stamps, CM and changing altitude.
