Venus and Jupiter - or just hot pixels

Nothing special really but I got this yesterday morning hand held with my 12-100 at 80mm.
I do think it's Venus but wasn't too sure about Jupiter.
I was just practising for the 31st of Jan when the crescent Moon should be between the two planets clouds permitting.

Not sure Phill.

My Stellarium app just won't run for whatever reason. But the planets look pretty good to me, I doubt its your camera. Hot pixels are usually red I think....

Thanks guys just hoping for a clear sky on the 31st to get the moon in as well. Couldn't believe quite how bright Venus was. You could still see it just about as the sun started to come up.

At about 06:40 am on the 31st should be good. Only concern is the Moon might be so bright it could wash out the planets, though probably not as they are very bright.

So as they say - I wish you clear skies

It's the thick clouds covering Venus that reflects most of the light it receives from the Sun that makes it so bright.
