CCD Imaging Archive (Page Five)

Timo-Pekka Metsala

We like to feature the work of astronomers from all over the world so we were happy to receive these images from Timo-Pekka in Finland. (Parts of Finland experience polar nights - for over 50 days in winter the Sun doesn't rise at all.)

He has taken some great shots of Venus: enjoy!

Venus as seen through UV and IR filters This image of Venus during the daytime was taken with an assortment of different filters. First was visual, second was with an IR pass filter and the third was with Baader UV filter.

nearly one thousand stacked images of Venus in UV Just under a thousand stacked UV images of Venus. Equipment used included a Takahashi Mewlon 210 with EM-200, along with Tele Vue 2x APO Barlow lens and a ATK 2HS CCD camera.

thin crescent Venus This image of a very thin crescent Venus was taken in summer of 2004 with a SkyMax 102 Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope (f/13) and an ATK 2HS camera. At the time the elongation of Venus was a mere 4.7°!

You can check out more of Timo-Pekka's images over at his astrophotography website.
