Description

Very turbulent seeing on this evening. Venus is starting to drop lower at a faster pace. It will be become hard to image in a few weeks.

I rotated the camera occasionally to reduce optical artifacts. Seems to be a strategy that works well.

Notes:
Beta Regio is visible as a dark spot near the crescent.
Atla Regio may be visible on the western limb.
