Venus Campaign 2009
Of course, this means getting up at 5:30 in the morning on successive mornings for a few months, so it can be a bit of a pain. Still, the morning sky is lovely at the moment, so it's worthwhile.
I used my old 4" scope for the imaging. Why? Because the drive motor of Don, the 8" scope, prevents it from going down close to the horizon.
Here's an image of the crescent Moon, to go with crescent Venus.
