3% illuminated Venus

Pretty dreadful conditions this afternoon, i was hoping that imaging Venus nice and high up at 3pm it would be the best conditions.  It was so hot though, 32 degrees in my observatory.

Nice to catch an even thinner crescent, hoping to try and get a thinner one than the 2.2% i got the last time around.

C9.25, X1.8 Barlow, and 807 filter.  Not the best image, but ok considering the conditions
