Venus phases

This was a project to capture the phases of Venus for a complete orbit round the Sun. The first image was taken in July 2010 and the final image in January 2012.
The telescope used was a Vixen FL102S with a 2x barlow red filter and DMK21 camera. All images were taken in daylight. The separate images were assembled in photoshop using Skymap Pro to deduce where Venus was on it's orbit.
