    Hi, all. Venus and Neptune will make an extremely close conjunction on January 27, less than a quarter of a degree apart! The pair will be about a half-degree apart the night before. This means that you can see both within the same telescopic field of view with a low power EP this coming Sunday and next Monday evenings. Here is an image I took a few years ago of the pair with my Nikon through my 127mm Mak-Cass:

    Clear skies!
