On a short trip to Targoviste, where I was hopefully going to catch the ISS in transit over the disc of Venus (transit duration: 0.02seconds!) I had the luck of some very good seeing conditions for a short imaging session with Venus. Unfortunately the ISS transit was a total failure due to technical problems (hard drives, focusing…) despite perfectly clear skies, and good seeing conditions.
The Venus image, resulted from a small amount of processing of the final stacked image, is presented below together with the technical details:
And an artificially colored version of the above:
And a step further: composition of the above image with the one from my previous post showing sunspot group AR2403 near the limb of the Sun. Hope you’ll enjoy the image!
The above images showing Venus were posted by Deborah Byrd on the EarthSky.org website. Thank you Deborah!
