Venus, false color

Again, nothing new, same old gear, but I replaced the red/infrared filters because I suspect that my barlow lens is not permorming well with the wide band filters. So this time, green is the new orange, and the Calcium K line remained, as I like it better than the Venus U, at least for this setup.

N150/750 on the modded EQ3, the soapbox autoguider, ASI 178 MM with cooling added. I was looking at the amount of boxes I put together, and it’s starting to eclipse the “original” gear.
