Transit of Venus June 6 2012

The Cheap Way!

Due to the cloud cover on the day, I had decided to give the transit a miss, just looking at a couple of web pages to see how others were seeing it.

However, late morning saw a patch of clear sky moving in over my place, so I set out to see what I could do. After a bit of thought, I set up this highly complex set-up.....

As you can see, some very expensive gear and a tricky set-up!

As you can see, the results are entirely commensurate with the equipment used and the time taken on the setup. But at least I can tell the grandkids "I was there, I saw it."
