Jay Dougherty's Mars Occulation Sequence

Jay Dougherty's Mars Occulation Sequence

12th Dec 2022

Jay Dougherty captured the full moon occultation of Mars at opposition from his front yard in Granite Bay, California. He used his new Stellarvue SVX130T, a Nikon Z9 ISO 64 1/160th for the Mars exposures and ISO 800 5 sec for the background sky/stars. Multiple exposures developed in Lightroom and then composited in Photoshop. There was no enlargement, just an angle crop to reference the subject as he saw it.
