If venus is in the top part of the moon, is that because all of you guys are northern-hemispheres? My Venus was in the bottom-left corner of the sun (in Aus)
If you saw Venus in front of the moon, I'd like to know where you were viewing it from as it wasn't on Earth!
The position of Venus would vary from your viewing point. Further complicated depending on certain types of telescope which may mirror the image in some or more axis...
Here's my little sequence. Times are UK BST.
5:06am No sign of Venus here... hang on, that's not the sun is it. Wrong direction!
5:11am The view looking in the right direction. Cloud...
5:22am I see you!
5:27am Although it had moved away from the low cloud, it moved into another band.
5:31am At last, a clear shot.
5:39am Making contact on the way out...
5:42am The kit in action.
5:54am Barely visible still... the sun went behind some thin cloud after this so I didn't catch the exact moment Venus disappeared.
Canon 7D and 600D.
Canon 100-400L and 15-85.
Baader solar film ND5 on the 100-400L.
I also took some video I might sort out later.
I also made one minor mistake. I forgot to pack an extender, which would obviously give a bit more coverage. I'll remember it for next time...
