Mercury and Venus day time pics

Mercury and Venus from this morning 9am 28.4.19 . Not much happening on the sun so tried Mercury for the first time and a first for me doing planetary during the day . It was a bit of a challenge but happy with the results as its the first Ive even looked at Mercury.
C11 , ASI224 at f25

Did you use a IR filter or similar to bring up details or is this just plain LUM? That C11 is dialled up alright.

Was just straight up asi224 osc with the usual ir filter. I tried with the 290 and ir pass filter as well as rgb but the results weren't as good for some reason

I agree with the others that Mercury came out really good with some detail on it.
If you want to get detail of the clouds on Venus you need a Venus filter which is essentially a UV filter that operates from 320 to 380nm.
However they are not cheap so you would have to do a lot of Venus imaging to justify the purchase.
