Incredibly thin Venus, very hard to find it through a telescope.
This is one of my few attempts on imaging Venus with monochrome camera in RGB. First I took a few videos with dslr camera and it had the same color tone with grey background as the processed RGB image. So fairly realistic and processing went well, which is good :)
Venus was only 5.9% illuminated at the time.

2000 frames each channel, best 20% stacked in Autostakkert 2.
