So this time, I lugged my telescope upstairs onto the balcony and took some shots of Venus. At last I managed to get more than a rather blobby shaped blob. In fact you can clearly see it is showing phases like the moon here. All this while trying to supervise my son writing thank you letters and juggling USB cables. Taken and stacked using a webcam and registax, but taken over the roof of the house across the street - not the best for avoiding heat haze!
Anyway - at last a good shot of venus.
