Venus from Thursday (10th) in UV

Recommended Posts

I have had a few sessions on Venus recently, Thursday (10th) again the conditions looked promising. Captured in daylight, at an altitude around 20 degrees.

The usual set up, C9.25, Asi290mm, X1.8 Barlow & Baader UV filter! Around 15,000 frames captured again.

Stacked in A/S2, sharpened in CS2. The image on the right is a single alignment box, the left is multiple boxes.

There does look some pleasing cloud detail visible again, but slightly different to the 7th.

Terrific stuff, thanks for sharing these. It’s great to see images (and such good ones too) of Venus which seems to be a rare target compared with others. I’m visual only in this hobby and hoping that with some persistence Venus might offer up a hint of the detail you’ve captured. Nice one! :thumbsup:

Unfortunately I think you would be very lucky to see any details even with a large aperture and filters.
