A lovely crescent Venus started off a planetary marathon in Marathon, Texas. Seeing conditions were a disappointment, but my ZWO ADC (Atmospheric Dispersion Corrector) was not! The FireCapture ADC tool made adjustments easy, although at times the turbulent seeing conditions put on a colorful and scintillating show.
This image was made from the best 10% of 16 thousand images captured with a Questar 1350/89mm telescope, Dakin 2x Barlow, ZWO UV/IR cut filter, ZWO ADC, and ZWO ASI224 planetary video camera. Images stacked in AutoStakkert 3, with final crop and white balance correction in Photoshop.
