daytime viewing (Blue Mountains)

Chris V and I set up to view Venus. It was nearing inferior conjunction, only about 8 or 9 degrees from the Sun. We were very careful of the amount of light coming into the OTA.

Also viewed Jupiter. Very pale.

5:56 PM. We viewed Venus again, with Uncle Tony. He really liked it.

5:58. We viewed the Sun Hα in the TV101. We used Chris's Williams Optics binoviewer with WO 20mm eyepieces. Very neat.


Chris shared with me his iPhone shots. I liked the one with the blue sky. He posted the other on his Twitter page.
