Having  watched Venus play hide and seek for  over an hour  through the  bare Branches of a line of Oaks this was the  final  image,  hand held  from my high level Observatory ( Bedroom window)  of the  close  encounter  of Venus and Saturn tonight. Saturn was not  visible to the naked  eye  but was clearly  shown on  the  Cameras live view. l The  forecast  for the next  day or so looks poor  so  this  makes up for my dismal failure to capture the  transit of Mercury.
