Again orographic clouds on Mars, imaged between 02:15 and 04:56 UTC. The images were recorded with my Meade Starfinder 10" F/4.5 telescope working at F/37 and a DMK21AU04 camera with Astronomik RGB filters. The animations show Mars in RGB, high contrast Blue and blue for optimal cloud details, and black and white for better surface details.
