Hi.

Another luck shot. I drove about 40km to catch this one. So much clouds all around except at a particular location where I went to catch him. Just time to draw the full disk and the big whole in the clouds was closed.

Andre.

Good to know someone else is prone to driving around looking for bits of blue ... will probably have to do similar today if I'm to finish my first year imaging with a shot , the forecast is less than promising.... http://www.forecast....html?v=per_hour

Thanks Steve.

Thanks Ken. Yes I like driving my Miata. I reached 300,000 km last week.

Also you can see what can be fitted in this small car. The pictures have been taken at Venus transit. All on the first image was packed in the Miata including chair, battery, two scopes, tripods..

Andre,
You are good at packing up. That is impressive to get all the equipment in the car. We had an overloaded SUV for vacation with two kids, wife, and mother in law. I was only able to bring my little refractor. Still got some decent views to show my nieces Saturn and the Moon.


As always a pleasure to look at your work.


Ken

Yes, I can fit my scopes in so tight space. It's crazy what can fit in this little car.

Thanks Ken.
