On the morning of July 27, 2003, I put my ST-237A behind a Televue 2x Powermate and put all that on my AP127 refractor. The morning was hazy with 100% humidity and calm winds. This is the result of the best 40 R, G, B images from a run of 75 R, G, B images. Processed with Registax II and then Photoshop and compared to the image from the same time with Mars Previewer II.

This image was taken with a SBIG ST-237A
with a 2X Powermate in an AP127mm on a
ParamountME. Approx. 40 RGB images were
combined and processed with Registax.
Then inported into Photoshop for final
color adjustment and web conversion.
This is this "Mars Previewer II" rendition
of the same moment in time. As you can see,
they match up pretty well.

On the morning of August 27, 2003, I installed a modified Logitech Quickcam Pro 4000 webcam on my AP127 refractor with a Televue 2X Powermate and captured this AVI video. Conditions were not the best as the humidity was 100%, temp hovering around 74°F, and a heavy haze leftover from the days heat. But, still recognizable even under these terrible conditions.
To see the conditions during that morning I created a short video, click on MARS VIDEO to download and play.
