Mercury and Venus Section Overview

Dr Paul G Abel

The most interesting themes of present work concern the building up of a database of CCD images of the planet Mercury, and the frequent imaging of the upper clouds of Venus in ultraviolet light. But systematic visual observations will always be relevant, and so the observer with a relatively small instrument can still contribute to the work of this BAA group. The Director will be pleased to offer help and advice to intending and current observers.
