I’m back out in my driveway for the first time in a couple weeks. It’s rather chilly, but very clear. I’m hoping to take some deep sky stuff tonight. The image above is of Venus. It’s getting huge in the scope now and will only be getting bigger over the next month or so – it’s clearly a crescent and I believe that I can see that it’s a crescent even looking at it with the naked eye.
