Hi! I made a test of my most portable setup (described in photo) from my balcony (grrr, COVID19 quarantine) and I want to show you the result.

And this is one of the movies I used to stack:

Hello, de nouveau! Je reviens avec une photo d'aujourd'hui, en fait avec la comparaison entre Venus de 7 et de 18 avril. J'attends la phase de faucille (j'espere que c'est le mot droit), quand la planete sera plus grande en termes d'angle apparent.

Oops! My previous post was for a french forum. I've no idea how I posted it here. Well, I have another comparison between previous positions of Venus and yesterday's. This time I used Sharpcap for capture, because on the PocoF1 phone I had the impression that the planet is overexposed.

And this is the best capture I made yesterday. I also modified the comparison, including this pic in the collage.

il faut dire le mot juste , pas droit ça fait aucun sens en français.

you must use the word 'juste' in French and not droit .

Though the balcony (and weather) conditions weren't good, I managed to catch Venus yesterday. Probably my last Venus picture for now. The planet is pretty low and I filmed in daylight conditions.

I managed to take some frames even yesterday... in very bad seeing conditions. The collage is far bigger, but the forum redimension big images.
