Venus Crescent 2020

In the year 2020, I made some observations of the Venus crescent and took some photos of it. I mostly used my SkyWatcher Skymax-127 and also the C8. When using the Skymax-127, I mostly screwed my Sony RX100 M4 to the 32 mm eyepiece. Sometimes I just held the camera to the eyepiece. Even with my Sony RX10 M4 I attempted photos of the crescent of the Venus!

At the beginning, the sky was still fairly bright, and the Venus stood high in the sky.

 

Later the sky was darker, but Venus stood still quite high in the sky.
