Not so Great Venus and Mars

Not so great images this time, as I said below, the temprature was 38 deg Celcius, great for swimming (which we did to end up our Sandy Creek adventure) but lousy for seeing, Any detail in Mars was blurred out, and Venus was all over the place, looking more like a writing snake than a planet. The turbulence didn't do anything to detract from Venus' size (drop a weeks observing and the planet zooms up on you) or it's obvious crescent shape though. Compare this with the images I took on November 27 and you will see how much Venus has grown and changed phase.
