    I processed my Venus data using the Antlia UV filter from last Friday. I received the filter a few weeks ago and am just now getting to use it. Much has been going on in my personal life surrounding a major family loss and I'm starting to get back into astrophotography again. The Antlia UV filter works pretty well with my 180mm Mak/ASI 224mc combo:

    It cost about half the price (around $200 US) of the Baader or Astrodon UV filters (around $400) and seems to show similar performance to the less expensive Astromania UV filter (part of 3 filter set: UV/IR/CH4 pass, for about $150 US). Focus can be a challenge, but you can no doubt get some cloud detail!

    Regards,
    Reggie :D
