The night of 23rd October was a constant battle with bouts of cloud and occasional gusts of wind, but eventually I managed to collect some colour luminance and IR data that I was able to stack for Mars.  Conditions were marginally better than for the image I posted for 21st October.  This is a de-rotated stack of colour and IR data taken from the best and most usable videos over a period of 25minutes.
