  1. I like that, lovely image. The spikes aren’t very obvious unless you zoom in, on Rigel more so perhaps but it looks quite good to me.
  2. Another bright Venus at 55mm with my 55-200mm zoom..
  3. Thanks Pete, looking for it first thing each evening has become addictive. It’s amazing how it’s been clear here shortly after sunset so Venus is in sight but later it’s totally clouded up.
  4. I had a good look at the planet early this evening & could clearly see the phase. I decided to see what sort of image I could get. Exposed for the planet it was obviously tiny but exposed for the lovely blue sky it showed off it’s brightness. Taken with my 10” Dob on the EQ Platform through a 2 Powermate, 15 seconds at ISO400. A good test of my collimation as well.
  5. Great image, could be a painting.
  6. I went out again later when I realised to complete cloud cover
  7. I’m a bit embarrassed to say I didn’t realise there was a partial eclipse when I took this. Taken with my baby tak early on, about 5.15pm so the shadow is just below Tyco, and just about visible if you look carefully.
  8. Thank you. Yes it was a great sight here too yesterday, albeit cloudier, they were a bit closer.
  9. Thank you. It’s still clear here. Venus currently like a headlamp in the sky. I just attempted to catch them both with a better exposure on the moon but despite the planets brightness the contrast is still too much.
  10. Had a bit more time to prepare for this one. Taken at f1.4 with my old second hand nifty fifty Takuma. Christmas lights on our hedge in the foreground and a plane very conveniently flew past the moon.
