With Grischa Hahn just introducing the feature to be able derotate the night-side of Venus in Winjupos 11.1.4, at Anthony Wesley's request, I have combined my night-side images from 2nd, 5th, 6th and 9th May to create one super-derotation showing thermal features on the night-side derotated to a common date of the 5th May. This represents an accumulated exposure of 71.5 minutes at prime focus. Hoping to do a giff animation in the next few days showing the movement of these dark features over this span,

Cheers

Martin
