    I was going to take my telescope out this weekend but ended up being fairly cloudy.

    This is a shot of venus I took a few years ago with the E-P1 and a 4" achromatic refractor.

    Hi Guys

    Managed to shoot the Moon and Venus on Saturday using an OM 135mm on a GF2 in the evening twilight.

    Are you sure that second shot isn't really a white orb taken with a Fuji X10? :rofl:

    They're spread a bit further apart tonight, but the alignment is still dramatic.

    This is the last night of the show as the moon is moving on into Orion and it will be raining tomorrow night.

    Jupiter and Venus have continued to close on one another
