  1. I saw this tonight! Very cool how Venus was just hanging over the Pleiades. Nice pictures.

  2. Until Telescope Paul complimented you on the ‘nice pictures’, I thought they were great simulations and I was going to ask you where you got them from.
    After I did the Guy Ottewell trick of right clicking, clicking ‘view photo’ and clicking to enlarge, I could see they were really photos. Nice work!!!
