I finally got around to processing my Venus capture on the 4th. This was my first shot of Venus through my current rig, and rather than do a Live View capture I decided to experiment with the in-camera 3x zoom video.

Seeing = 4/5, jet stream = 8 m/s

 

My Mars capture on the 6th showed that Live View certainly produces a better image, but in a pinch (and on a relatively boring target like Venus), it does just fine.

 

Cheers,

BQ
