Using my monochrome webcam I tried to capture some of the cloud detail on Venus.
I used a purple filter and a UV/IR cut-off filter. I tried various exposures and settings, but no joy.
Oh well, at least I got a reasonable image of Venus showing a thick crescent phase.
I also had a go at Mars in colour as well while I was at it.
Maybe it’s now time to upgrade from the humble webcam?
