This collection is of my images of Venus I captured during December 2016 and February 2017 which shows the change in phases as Earth catches up to Venus in the orbit around the Sun. The pictures where cloud details are coming through were captured through a UVenus (UV) filter on the clearer atmospheric condition evenings and used as the blue channel. The rest the channels are IRPass 685nm filter as red and luminance (IrCut filter) as green. All were captured using a DMK618 through a 14" Dobsonian.
Hi All, I had another go at imaging Venus through the 14" dob. This time I spotted Venus when the sky was still quite bright and Venus was quite high in the sky. Before imaging I had a look at it through the eye piece and what I saw was amazing, even upto 471X it was crisp and massive in the FOV with a hint of shading near the terminator. I tried it using a 2X powermate and the X-Cel 5mm eyepiece, delivering 660X. The view was only just marginally softer than when using the 7mm LV, so I was quite happy with that, but visibly the disc was only slight larger at 660X vs 471X, so I preferred to view it through the 7mm & 2X PM combo. I imaged Venus through a 3X TV Barlow and the IS DMK618 through the Astrodon UV, Baader IRPass 685nm and a Neodymium/Green filter combo, later combining the stacked videos as RGB (IR NdG UV). I attached the color as well as the UV stacked frame. Thanks for looking. Mariusz
