20090105 Venus

Telescope: Tele Vue Ranger
Camera: DMK 31AF03
Mount: Meade LXD55
Other: Tele Vue 1.25" diagonal, Tele Vue 3x barlows

1835 (GMT+8), 1/1000s exposure, medium to high gain:-

1837 (GMT+8), 1/130s exposure, zero gain:-

Seeing extremely poor, the chromatic abberation of the Ranger is dancing around with the distorted semi-circle. Crazy indeed.

I let my 6 years old daughter Alby to have a look into my 13mm Nagler Type 6, she's quite happy with the view!
