Venus 20.04.2018


Venus imaged during the afternoon of 20.04.2018.
Although imaged in broad daylight, the very short exposures required, just a couple of miliseconds, means the sky looks black. Such short exposures are required to prevent the image over exposing as Venus is so bright.
Celestron 8SE and QHY5L-II monochrome camera with Celestron LX 2 x barlow.
AVI stacked in Registax with minor adjustments in wavelets.
No post-processing other than a slight crop.

Thank you. I thought I had captured a little cloud detail but then thought it may have just been wishful thinking. It was nice to have another go at this beautiful target.

Have you ever tried using a variable polarizer filter with Venus? I was able to get some good detail visually and in imaging with one.
