And yet another crescent Venus

It is March 12, 2017 and 7:45 pm DST in La Pine, Oregon and Venus is still shining brightly in the west.   I broke out my little Bushnell NorthStar 90mm Catadioptric Telescope (OTA) and mount my Canon t3i to capture yet another crescent Venus (skies still mirky).

Compare the above recent image with this one that I took 11 days earlier (March 1, 2017)
and you will see that the crescent is getting thinner and thinner:

And then this one taken back on January 30, 2017 in broad daylight. (The poor quality of this image is due to atmospheric conditions).
