Description

An early attempt at imaging Venus with my 6SE. (Finally getting around to processing some data that's been collecting dust in my laptop.)

Finding this to be a tricky target ... the brightness, lack of surface features and generally poorer seeing make it harder to be sure focus is spot on. The lack of features also make processing feel a little like guesswork!

Any constructive criticism or suggestions welcome. :)
