344mm F/4.5 Newton, ASI 1600MM, IR-pass filter.
A sjot of Venus with a 14 inch scope under good seeing conditions. The observation was done in daytime, at a pleasing 20 degrees Celsius and some wind. At the eyepiece (at 100 to 300x) the very thin crescent, now almost a full arc-minute in diameter, looks fantastic. Lovely period to observe this inner planet.
