Observing Venus

Good evening everybody, this is a live report! I am now sitting behind my FS60 the small telescope of my roof observatory and I am observing the beauty of the night sky; the planet Venus. I am using a 2.8mm eyepiece giving a magnification of 126x. Venus's phase is clearly visible. The second planet of our solar system looks really big and bright (4,5 mag) at this magnification. This is an impressive view! Don't miss it! cs px
