Another venus

Another go at venus. Well it was sitting there in the almost daylight allowing much easier telescope setup, so I thought I'd have a quick go. By the time it was all set and focused, it was pretty dark, and I got a few shots before is sank below next doors roof. This is probably the best of them.

Venus and Jupiter

I missed the transition of the moon and Venus recently - clouds and, well I forgot/had to ferry the children around at the time I could have seen it. Anyway, last night I did see Venus and Jupiter although they had moved away from the moon. However this called for some quick photography as they started to set behind the opposite house roof and getting set up in time always takes longer when you are in a hurry - plugs just won't fit into holes, especially in the dark. So I expect the focusing isn't as good as it could be.

Shows up the street light glow rather well dontcha think?
