Venus Transit by Tom Kolar
June 8, 2004, at 5:55am and soon I was taking pictures of the transit on the horizon.
The haze worked well as a filter so none was needed on the scope at sunrise.
I also could clearly see Venus with the eye alone at that time too.
After taking some sunrise shots, I went back home to set up and show my wife this twice in a lifetime opportunity.
I finished up taking pictures until last contact.
All of these pictures were taken with a Canon F-1 body on the
Questar 3 1/2" scope. Then the stills were scanned into digital format.
