2019 has finally "arrived" for me. I had a surprisingly good evening with Mars. These three images look better to me than the ones from December despite the smaller apparent diameter.
 
I barely squeezed by with any images in the morning thanks to clouds missing from the weather forecast (not unusual here, happened a few nights ago when it should've been completely clear). I went after Venus while waiting for the clouds in front of Jupiter to thin. As soon as Jupiter brightened up enough, I rushed for it and barely had enough time to get a full RGB set before losing it again.
