I am curious, as to what media or software you guys are using, in terms of knowing when certain alignments, conjunctions or events happen?
I actually had a clear sky, a couple of days ago, when the conjunction of Venus and the Pleiades happened, but I didn't know until the day after. I even thought: "what a nice clear sky, but naaah, the moon is way too bright tonight" (I mostly shoot galaxies these days).
So I am actually a bit bummed at missing that.
So, what good sources are you guys using? I am mostly using stellarium, reading a bit on the forum here, and looking into SkySafari Pro (will that give any clues?). Or is it simply by chance figuring it out 😅
Thanks in advance.
30+ exposures between 1 and 60 seconds with an ASI533MC_Pro and WO61 refractor. The huge dynamic range makes this a real challenge lol

I snapped a few photographs of the Venus on 28th evening and surprisingly noticed a circular rainbow like pattern around the Venus.
I'm attaching a photo of the Venus and the moon together and another of the Venus with its blown up image as an inset.
The Venus appears too small in the photo with the Moon appearing on the left side but, this pattern can still be observed when the image is blown up.
I had snapped such photos of Venus earlier and have also done so on the next day but, none of those showed this peculiar/accidental feature.
Could any of you please inspect the photos and let me know weather it's really a rainbow around the Venus or not.
