Transit of Venus

The transit of Venus

stardate: 08062012

I managed to get a picture and a few videos of the transit of Venus.

The weather was very bad, massive amounts of cloud and it rained, however it did clear up for about 40 minutes. And I was ready.

I used a solar filter over the telescope and used the DBK astronomy camera.

Worked quite well. There is some dust on the CCD I think, which was a shame for the video, I’ll clean that off now! Grr.

Kirk out.
