Transit of Venus

Well, the weather wasnt good, but some of us in the Astro Soc managed to see it, just!

The cloud was a pain, but as the morning wore on, it slowly improved.

Looks like the rest of the country had good weather though, so some people should have got a good view of it.

Heres a digi pic I took of it, just as Venus was finishing its transit and about to disappear again.





Note: the pic was taken with a Fujifilm M603 digital camera pointed straight into the telescope eyepiece.

Good camera by the way - thanks Bill!
