4 planets imaged on 31st July 2020 under extraordinarily good seeing conditions.
Venus is a false colour image IR(G)UV, where the IR is mapped to Red, a 50:50 blend of IR-UV to Green and UV to Blue. The others are RGB colour images.
The orientation is north up, but the relative sizes are just what I chose for aesthetic reasons.
