Venus -3 days

Posted By Pernel Johnson

Excellent image, Joe!

I made an attempt at taking an image yesterday too. I was using my TEC-140, a 25mm Ultrascopic eyepiece, and a solar filter to find the Sun and then move Sun out of the FOV. Knowing about where Venus was located I nudged the scope up and to the left until I found it. Here's my afocal attempt using my point and shoot camera. The actual view was much sharper. Oh, image was taken at 2054 UT on June 6, 2012.

Nice photo, John. If I had to choose between one of those I'd be hard pressed to say which one it be. grin
