    I love astro photography. Stars are the stuff dreams are made of.

    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.

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

    Jupiter has a few more moons showing tonight.

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

    It was quite a night for viewing the sky tonight.

    Jupiter and Venus have continued to close on one another

    Orion was showing quite nicely.

    Mars was out too

    and as the Moon came up

    there was Saturn
