...dedicated to Venus, my favourite planet.

Seeing was from poor to fair  so UV video didnt show any remarkable cloud. In infrared, instead, thanks also to perfect dichotomy, both polar cusps extesions are seen.

In the attached GIF, taken on Arcturus 50° above horizon in IR, you can have an idea of air turbulence (quite strong at jet stream level).

Hi Vincenzo,

 

Nice work and presentation!

 

I too enjoy observing and imaging Venus.
