For the first time ever I managed to spot Venus in broad daylight. I first found it using my 11x80mm Helios Binoculars but once found I could see it clearly with the naked eye. My 127mm Refractor is currently resting whilst I consider the construction of a permanent pillar. This image was taken with my QHY5-ll planetary camera fixed to my old USA made Meade 90mm. ETX RA Mak perched on a wobbly photographic tripod (The belt driven mount has long been consigned to a rarely opened box.) . Because the weather threatened to close in, I didnt take the time to set up my Star Adventurer, so a small crescent was chased several times as it rapidly transitted the chip in my camera. Lots of fun!
Anyway I am quite pleased with the processed image - probably a processing artifact but I'm kidding myself there is a bit of cloud detail visible near the limb at 12.00 clock.
