I used the following gear: MC102/1300, 2x barlow, UV/IR cut, ASI 462MC and the TS-Optics 76/342 TS76EDPH, with the filterwheel, and ASI 178MM with a 3x ED barlow, both — one after the other — mounted onto the EQ3-mod with the mountpusher.

Since the phase of Venus doesn’t favor observing its clouds, and the  seeing was really bad, I opted for the IR850-pass, and the solar continuum filter to minimize the atmospheric effects. Five minutes for each.
