Venus three ways

About this image

Venus is only 11.2 arc seconds at the moment but a good proportion of the disc is showing.  Imaged in daylight using a mixture of cameras and filters.  FOr all three3 images I had my newer ADC at maximum correction for atmospheric distortion.  The left hand image is a straight luminance with a colour camera, the middle image is 807nm IR pass with a colour camera that is sensitive in IR and the right hand image was the trickiest of the three, a combination of several image stacks in ultraviolet to attempt to capture some cloud detail.
