I did take one daytime infrared of the crescent moon today with 642 ir but spent most of my time on Venus because seeing was not good, had to use less frames and more wavlets than normal to get a savable image…. So not great but still fun and actually better than I expected given how much it was jumping around during capture, I did not shade my scope properly so most of the trouble might have been tube currents

That's very good contrast for a daytime shot, even more so since a 642nm filter isn't really that close to the near IR (more like deep red than IR).

I’ve had very good luck with the 642, it consistently our performs the 850 as far as detail, as far as contrast you just have to be extra careful not to over expose to give you more control on adjustments in post processing
