    Thumbs up Venus 30/12/13



    Hi all,

    Here,s one i got yesterday evening as the Sun was setting of the crescent of Venus
    heading West.
    Dirty atmosphere was shimmering the image quiet a bit but i managed it
    at 48x with the 8" Dob.

    Here,s a look at what i got.

    Cheers,

    Steve,...

    Hi Steve. You have a very nice image of the waning crescent Venus here. As it is setting, it is hard to get a clean capture, when going through so much atmosphere. Thanks for sharing your work with us Steve, and have a very Happy New Year.
