I live in Rome, a large metropolis, and the Venus detection using my telescope, a Mak Cassegrain 18 cm, is difficult for the low heigth and the evident turbolence. However the planet is showing the low phase. Two days ago i imaged Venus and the two clips display really the planet under the turbolence effect, as it is without any processing of the images. The firt clip shows Venus imaged at the first focus. The second clip displays Venus imaged with a barlow 2x. I used a Lumenera LU075M at 30 fps.

Very nice demonstration of turbulence effect at high magnification!
