About this image

After some months of limited sucess imaging Venus in Near Infrared, I tried Ultra Violet.Thanks to guidance from Paul Abel, Chris Dole and Bill Leatherbarrow,this is proving more rewarding. It is all in sharp contrast to my poor 35mm efforts back in the sixties. 

Eventualy, I want to try and capture nightside thermal emission at the one micron wavelength, but need to first serve my apprenticeship in IR and UV.
