Venus green+U

The same gear, but now the fully automated filter wheel with its hand controller optionally connected to the soapbox project and the desktop app now controlling sharpcap — telling it which filter is active. This day the Venus U filter yielded the best result.

In fact, the pros and cons in my experience with Venus, two different barlow lenses and two different scopes, the N150/750 and the N250/1200:

filter pro con
Venus U brighter image way less sharp, could be due to the barlow not being optimized
CaK quite sharp darker image needing longer expos/higher gain
