This is the other Messier Object I imaged this evening.

This is one of the widefield Messier Objects I imaged tonight.
I haven’t been blogging much – I’ve been busy and the weather hasn’t cooperated. Tonight is quite nice, however and I’m imaging a couple things – this is the Moon.

At a certain point, because of the atmosphere of Venus, there’s a kind of teardrop shape as it completely enters the Sun – this is at that moment.
This image is from the start of the Transit. More images soon.

Mars is shrinking quickly in the telescope, but I was still able to make out some detail and the camera was able to capture it. It’s about half the size it was a month ago.

I’m not willing to stay up until past 2 to try to image the recent Mars “anomaly”. (Which is probably just a high altitude storm) I did take this quick shot this evening, though.
The Moon is a nice crescent tonight between Jupiter below and Venus above. I also got a decent shot of Earthshine on the moon:

Tonight was pretty nice for viewing and I was able to get a decent shot of Mars once it rose significantly above my roof. While not quite as clear as Monday’s image, I think this still shows off the red planet pretty nicely.
