Imaged and captured on June 18th 1999 at approximately 2200 hours UTC. Venus is a good daytime target, since it is easily visible in the finder. At the eyepiece, it often appears easier to see than at night when it is much brighter relative to the background.
Telescope: 8" f10 Meade LX200.
Capture device: ATI All In Wonder Pro video card at 640 by 480 resolution
Processed with SkyPro (now CCDSoft) to stretch the contrast. No sharpening was applied.
