About this image

I was keen to compare UV with 1,00nm pass but a first attempt with Venus overhead was only steady enough for a straight capture in IR with the 1,00nm pass filter.  To my surprise when Venus was much lower and the Sun blocked off from my viewpoint I was able to capture steady images in both UV and IR.  I was also able to use a 2x Barlow with the IR capture.
