Hi All,

Here is Venus taken with my DMK Firewire camera and 10" SCT from my backyard in Dayton, with different Barlows lenses (2x & 4X).

Venus was only about 20 degrees off the horizon when I took these, so seeing sucked a bit, I really should have waited until it got higher for the higher barlow mags, 4x is a bit much, it did not quite fit in the FOV either.
but I was limited on time this morning, had to get ready for work and take the kids to school.

Captured 60 sec avi's, stacked in Registax4, and assembled in Adobe PS.
