    Always look forward to seeing your photos Pete, you've managed to capture some great shots tonight. I love that tree!
    Anyway, I was out tonight too, was going for the quartet:- Pleiades, Moon, Venus & Mercury- didn't get them though! May post some of mine later but they're not that great! I'm blaming the volcanic dust!LOL

    Aye , I'm sure thats whats giving us real nice Sunsets atm. Trees are great , esp' when they dont block your telescope FOV but block out street lighting . They deserve a hug noo and then , lol .

    Commented on the Pleiades/Moon/Venus shot you took .

    If its any consolation , I was unable to get ol' Mercury tonight as well , must have had his Turbo Wing Boots on tonight !

    Nice images, Pete.

    I got a few shots earlier which I'll post later. It really was a beautiful sight tonight....that is a beautiful sunset along with the crescent and Venus!
