Yesterday 15th March a clear sky after a very warm afternoon enabled a further viewing of Venus . Several images were made the attached being at 18.12 GMT. The equipment used was my C8 ( circa 1985) on a Super Polaris mount and eyepiece projection using a 20 mm Plossl. Sony 65a SLT exposure 1/30sec. Polar alingment was done by projecting the Sun’s noonday shadow and drawing a chalk reference line.
