Very difficult conditions including very poor seeing and a gusty wind which was blowing the telescope all over the place. Made it a challenge to capture Venus on a small camera chip at f38! Managed to get something in the end, although I nearly gave up at one point when my cardboard dewshield/sunshade extension disappeared up the garden in a gust of wind.
