Our sister planet low in the twilight sky, just after sunset. About 200 ToUCam Pro 840K frames at 1/100th second, using the SV152 apo. The frames were drizzled (doubled in size) and the resulting single image was resampled 200% as well. Seeing was horrible, hence the soft focus. This was taken through a thin layer of smog from a park in the city at our club's SpringPark Star Party, on Dec. 5, 2005.

Scope and mount supplied by 3RF Sciences (on the Web at 3RF dot org).
