Good stuff Andrey.
Nice capture at twilight.

I got a view last night after the moon had risen.
Antares was not naked eye by then but both revealed through the SW 72 Evostar with the TV 22 Pan.

I revisited last night to. Venus shifted up, and the distance increased to 1.7 deg.

There was a lot of room in the 22pan view. When I dropoed in my 4mm kk ortho Venus revealed a very colorful 4/6 disc. ๐Ÿ˜Š
