This is two nights of images of Mars taken in misty condtions in the brief moments when the mist receded enough to see Mars clearly.  I had thought it was good on 4th November but in fact after the smoke died down and the mist eased for a while on 5th November it was clearer and I was able to get slightly sharper images.  I've included both the IR pass images separately from the combined colour and IR images to pick out as much detail as I could.
