The great astrophotographer Damian Peach gives us another beautiful image of Mars taken through the telescope.
From the left, we can see the color image followed by the b/w image in red, green and blue.
In the image taken with the blue filter is easier to see the cloud formations, such as the orographic cloud visible in the upper right located above the volcano Elysium Mons.
Also in the image taken with the blue filter, you can see a lighter equatorial band (probably cirrus) as well as a particular brightness of the left edge (west limbus) due to the persistence of night fog until the early morning hours. It is also possible to notice the presence of clouds near the polar caps.
