Venus - taken on the 6th June using a #45 Violet filter. I was hoping to catch more of the atmospheric detail of Venus, but ran out of time before it was too low to image. I think I have managed to get some detail so a promising first try with the new filter. Its certainly the best Venus image that I have manged to date.
