Hi everyone,

Last night seeing was good enough for me to get a high resolution image of Venus using a 2x barlow on my telescope.

And this morning I imaged Mars. The dust storm seems to be less than when I imaged it earlier this month.

Both were taken with my Takahashi CN-212 Cassegrain with Meade 2x Apo barlow, and ToUcam with IR/UV blocking filter.

Hi Kyle both shot are very nice, Venus getting thinner and larger and Mars starts off with a storm. Clear Skies
