That Fullercope really is a planet-killer.

Yes I've been getting more impressed with it everytime I use it lately. The great seeing on the 9th really allowed it to show it's mettle.  I had it up for sale a while ago but now very glad I had no takers.

Lovely image. What time of day are you shooting Venus and approximately what altitude is it? I've shot Venus both daytime and evening, but only in IR. I haven't tried daytime since buying the UV filter.
