Back from trip

I've just come back from a conference in Ireland.  I didn't do any stargazing there, but as always it's amazing to see how long the summer days are up north (latitude 53 versus the 31 of my home).  Here's a photo of the moon (left) and Venus (right--to see it you may need to click to blow up the image, or adjust the contrast on your screen) over a foggy golf course in Maynooth (Canon G7 braced on a bridge railing, set to 1600 ISO and 1/10 seconds), at around 9:50 pm local time.
