My first shot of Mars in 2020 – a year and a half passed my previous shooting. The visibility conditions of Mars are gradually improving; now it can be observed quite high above the horizon closer to the morning. The angular size of Mars is currently small – about 11 seconds of the arc, but by mid-October 2020 it will be 2 times larger than now.

Equipment:
-Celestron NexStar 8 SE telescope
long Barlow lens 2x
-ZWO ADC
extender tube NPZ
ZWO ir-cut filter
-ASI ZWO 183MC camera (100 fps).
Stacking 1000 frames from 11908 with Autostakkert.
Location: Russia, Anapa, backyard.

Also, at the end of the capturing, I managed to visually test the Celestron Mars filter with Meade HD-60 6.5 mm eyepiece. When using this filter, the planet’s color changed to pinkish, however, the visibility of the darkening on the disk of Mars significantly improved.
