After several minutes of searching, I finally found Venus and the Moon only about 25 degrees away from the Sun. I decided to try a shot and see what would come out. Taken through a KnousMotor 500 4.5" reflector at 33x mounted atop a Meade 12.5" Starfinder on Dobsonian mount, SONY Cyber-shot DSC-S700 set to Auto Adjustment settings, ISO 100, f/5.6, afocal (hand held), Orion 15mm Expanse eyepiece.
