With the crescent Moon as a reference, this was the moment to find Venus and Mercury back, in plain daylight, just before they would both hide behind the roofs & trees. Actually this is my first ever Mercury picture (widefield excluding). Both pictures with the Esprit 120 & ASI290MM.
5 times Vallis Schröteri and the crater Herodotus
The out-of-focus star test of the Mak during the imaging session of tonight. A slight de-centering is noticeable, as well as a thermal chimney 10 seconds stacked.
The planet barely clears the houses and tress. This is madness. Red spot showing nicely however. All images with a 180mm Maksutov & ASI290MM. Some artefacts I did not remove. I did not use an ADC (Atmospheric Dispersion Corrector)
