Quite possible. I thought venus at first, but it was too early in the afternoon for that. IMHO anyway.

started seeing it today at 3 -3:30

Don't worry, your not going nuts. I've been seeing it for about a month and a half now, if not longer.

Coult it possibly be Mercury?

I got this for my Bday.

www.vanns.com/shop/servlet/item/features/411999636

I set it to search mercury out and it aligned into that general area ( overcast, so no seeing)

liking the telescope though. I can't wait for a clear night.

Strange.

Looking at it at 9.7 and 26 MM it looks like an eclipse. finger nail shaped?

WTF is that?
