From Tucson 7:37AM Alt 63 Degrees, AZ 210 Degrees

From past observations, this daytime event should be visible provided, of course, there are clear skies.

Meh, maybe I should have worded it such to convey AT THIS PARTICULAR Position, observing it is rather easy. Anyway...I stink at Astrophotagraphy which is why I'm a Visual Observer. This feeble attempt will demonstrate why. :lol:

Great job! I was thinking it would be even brighter daylight at your location for some reason; thus even more difficult to observe and/or image. Either way you were right, nice job!!! I didnt mean to sound so negative.. :applause:

No problemo. I only regret I spend more time with the camera, so that the shot could have been properly focused.
I must have moved the diopter adjustment on the camera at some point.

Anyway, visually it was rather obvious. Observed with 60MM F15, TEC 140 and TEC MC250/12, which was also used natively for photo.
