More astronomers are looking into the SWIR bands these days. A German researcher, Dr. Sebastian Voltmer, has been looking at the inner planet Venus as a Ring next to the sun and how the crescent is getting bigger.

“In my previous images of Venus from May 2020 I only used planetary CCD cameras with NIR sensitivity. It was hard to get any signal of Venus’s surface. But with the cooled Ninox 640 II SWIR camera I got a much better signal-to-noiseratio. With the Ninox 640 II SWIR camera I was able to reveal the surface and the lower clouds in one image”
