I obtained these images of Mars with a 31-cm Newtonian (12 inches) at between f/28-f/30 and a Lumenera SkyNyx 2.1M camera or Phillips ToUCam Pro webcam. I used eyepiece projection with a 9-mm Nagler eyepiece and either a True Technology IR blocking filter (for colour images), a W25 (deep red) filter for black/white images, or no filter for unfiltered light images. After acquiring the AVI of Mars, using QuickFocus or K3CCDTools, I used Registax to select and stack frames from the AVI. I used the wavelet filters in Registax, and unsharp mask filters in Photoshop, to sharpen the image.
