Venus has gone from the evening sky in our part of Leicester, so here are some shots of the Moon.
Firstly here's Copernicus.
And now, another ray crater ... Tycho.

Trying to find Venus in the twilight sky, but no luck.
Got a couple of 'normal' moon pictures and then tried my new 5x Barlow on the Moon for the first time.
Focussing needs a feather-light touch, that's my excuse for why they are a bit blurry!!

The new Barlow lens arrived today, and here's Venus, over twice the size as last time, but very hard to focus and find. Telescope wouldn't self-align as the sky was too bright, so relied on the red-dot finder and luck...
Looking forward to next week when the Moon is back in the evening sky.

From the same observing session, a very fuzzy Venus through clouds. Still experimenting with settings on the camera...things can only get better.
And an experimental video of the moon, emerging from clouds, hence the brightening at the end.
