Heya,

 

Lovely clear evening to the South and saw our 19% waxing crescent Lunar disc and Venus. Seeing was average (3/5) for my area, early in the evening, around 1830pm. The 19% waxing crescent is a mosaic. Venus is a sythnetic composite of 742nm IR and 395nm UV (synthetic green channel made from 50% blend of the two).

Good images of the two, especially like Venus. Also your observatory has a nice appearance.

Whish one os the Moon and which one is Venus. 

 

Also, what's that big monstrosity in the third picture which looks like a high-tech SAM?

 

LOL! Kidding of course! BTW, your image of Venus is probably one of the best that I have ever see, Seriously...beautiful shot! I am impressed. I am grateful that you shared this.

 

Thank-you and Clear Skies!
