Agree and thanks John. I tried Venus again on Jan 18th (or the 17th) this time using eyepiece projection and the Canon Rebel T5.  This camera is supported by the digiCamControl program which allows a live view and good exposure/ISO controls.  Even so the result was only fair.  Some chromatic aberration and fuzziness was present on images.  The attached was enhanced in Photoshop Elements.  The crescent shape of Venus is now evident.  Over next 2 months Venus will be very interesting with a rapidly enlarging diameter and falling % illumination.

A bit distorted and probably a bit out of focus but here's a recent view of Venus.  The "half moon" phase I think is accurate.  Freezing fingers prevented me from trying to get a better shot!

Not a 'supermoon' anymore but still super to view and photograph.  This morning's moon in Leo was taken about 4:30 am.  Using prime focus had to take two shots to get the whole lit portion.  Put together in Photoshop Elements and slightly enhanced.
EDIT:  In case you noticed I did not take this in '2017' !!!
Corrected to '2016' in photo below.
EDIT, EDIT:  Another 'whoops'!  I just looked at the setting moon in the West and realized I had inverted my photo but failed to rotate it.  Hopefully I have it right now!!!

Nice one Randy!  Here's one I just took with an Orion 4.5 inch Starblast with 26 mm eyepiece projection setup on a Canon Rebel T5
