Object Name: Venus
Object Type: Planet
Location: Lombard, IL, USA, 41° 52′ 48″ N / 88° 0′ 28″ W

Media: Pencil
Comments: This is my Venusian vision, sketched using pencil, as observed through my 8″ f/5.9 dob at 240x. The picture was turned negative after scanning. Venus is a blazing sight in an eyepiece, it’s really challenging to see any surface (atmospheric) features. I think I noticed slight decrease in brightness in some regions towards terminator. Current Venusian phase is 57%.
