Venus and Mars

Another shot of Venus - this time with enough time to get an RGB run as well as mono.  ED120 APO, 2.5x Powermate, ASI120mm camera.  200/5000 frames each channel RGB and 200/10,000 frames for the mono.

Also - for a bit of fun - a swift 200/5000 mono frames of a really tiny Mars! (Same optics so this is comparable in size to Venus image)

First Sun image of the New year

My first pics of the Sun for three weeks and the first of the New Year!  hazy and -2°C outside so I'm a bit chilly .  In all that time I only missed three tiny spots as the Sun is so quiet at the moment.
