    Thanks to all who responded to my earlier post about discouragement with helpful suggestions!   Leveling the AH is much easier now using the proper technique (Thanks, Bill Morris!).  

    I got a nice shot of Venus early yesterday evening.  Ho = 24 degrees 34.9 minutes at 23:00:22 UTC.  When I plotted it with the latitude from a sun shot earlier that day, the fix was just under five miles from the GPS-supplied coordinates.  This was my first successful planet shot. 

    The splatter I mentioned in my previous post is due to my glasses.  When I remove my glasses, the image through the telescope is clear.  

    Patrick
