Venus

Using the experience gathered from my balcony observatory, I tried the old gear: the N150/750 on the now modified EQ3, and targeted Venus with several filters and the cooled ASI 178MM. Most pictures came out to be garbage, but some were good enough to start mixing them together. So I created a Calcium(Red-Calcium) bicolor image. Red became orange, the Calcium K line became cyan, and the Calcium K was applied once more as a luminance layer. It was kinda the first light for the ST4-enhanced EQ3 with the soapbox-guidance.
