Venus Using the Antlia UV Filter

Recommended Posts

I finally got to test out my new Antlia UV filter with my 180mm Mak/ASI 224mc imaging setup and got some pretty good results. It cost about half the price (around $200 US) of the Baader or Astrodon UV filters (around $400) and seems to show similar performance to the less expensive Astromania UV filter (part of 3 filter set: UV/IR/CH4 pass, for about $150 US). Focus can be a challenge, but you can no doubt get some cloud detail! 


I deactivated the debayer in Firecapture and imaged Venus in monochrome to eke out as much detail as possible.
