I made 2 RGB, UV & IR runs on Venus. The seeing was fair. I was pleased to see more detail in IR, using the 830nm BP filter, than I had seen before. The seeing precluded achieving really fine detail in UV but some nice broad patterns are visible. I imaged for 3 minutes per colour channel except for UV where I captured for 5 minutes. This is due to the lower frame rate (25fps) with UV.
