Crescent Venus, again

Finally got a few shots in the 100mm scope (24x telescope magnification, time: 1/100 sec. at f/4.5, approximately 10x zoom on the camera itself). Each of these was reduced in size by a factor of 4, whereas last night's image is a 100% crop. The larger image scale does make it clearer just how thin the crescent really is. Unfortunately, Venus was very low and so the seeing was rather poor; the final image quality isn't a whole lot better than with just the camera itself.
