Took a few shots of Venus this evening through the 8" telescope at medium magnification. I could see its large gibbous shape easily on the planet's eastern section. Also is an image of the planet with the naked eye just after sunset above the trees. The telescope image was taken while the sun was still high in the western sky at 20.20 local time.
