Venus at mag -4.29 0.7 AU away, and Uranus at mag 5.88 20.6 AU away, in one wide field of view.  10 magnitude difference!  Interesting, Starry Night Pro shows Venus maximum magnitude from Earth as -7.08.  Really?  Maybe it means something else.

Venus will have 50% illumination, 24 arc-second size.  Uranus will be 3.4 arc-seconds.
