Venus

Top
RGB + UV

Venus is at a favorable elongation from the sun. I started just before sunset (about 4:30 PM local time). This is one of the last images, about 5:30 PM, still
with an Alt of about 25 degrees.

C14 used at native FL because the added glass in a Barlow or Powermate would cut down on UV transmittance
Image scale about 0.28"/px
Some cloud detail is visible due to the use of the UV filter


FireCapture v 2.1 for Capture, AVIStack2 for stacking, Registax6 for wavelets
