Ace Mike! I'm almost encouraged to get up and have a look myself. Shameful sloth holds me down in the early hours. Kind thoughts, Bob

Friday 1st Sep 2017. Venus + M44 again. 0409-0430 BST. Again from bedroom window but this time with Japanese D70 zoom scope at x20. Nearly all the stars of the Praesepe cluster (from 39 & 40 Cancri) across the Venus, in the 4 o'clock position), fitting the fov. regards maf
