Hey everyone, haven’t posted in a while due to clouds and a new job but I finally got to image again! Still patiently waiting to try Saturn again, it’s been over 6 months for me! Anywho, the weather forecast said it might be partly cloudy and so my initial plan was to try to shoot the ISS, (didn’t workout as expected). All the ISS images with blurry and unusable, still not sure what went wrong. The weather forecast was not correct though and it ended up being 100 percent clear for a while, long enough to image Venus and get a horrible mars image too that is not good enough to share. The Venus image is made by combining a visible light image and a near UV image in photoshop and playing with the contrast. It’s hard to get any cloud detail with my setup so I figured I’d have fun with it and get creative. This isn’t meant to be what you’d see in real life but I do like how it turned out. Taken with a celestron nexstar 8se, televue powermate 2x, zwo 462mc, and Orion Sirius eq-g.
