NP127 Light Cup first Venus image

Here's my first Venus image through my NP127 Light Cup with Venus really low and under horrible seeing obviously ;-). When I first saw the raw frames, I thought wow why bother processing it at all and a quick run through Registax indeed did not turn out well. Then, I
thought well let me pass it through K3CCD and I was quite amazed at the result (though nothing to write home about) vs the raw images. I've included the typical raw frames in my AVI to be looked at. Note the colorful atmospheric refraction ;-).

I only had to rebalance the color a bit to get less yellow but that was it.

Enjoy,
