Does this image by Dave McCarter hint at one of the black drop forms, namely a thread connecting Venus to the solar limb? See if you can discern it at lower left. Image courtesy of Dave McCarter (©Dave McCarter)
Dave McCarter took this image through an ETX90 with an objective filter. It's a fine image, and even more impressive when one realizes his OTA was buffeted by high winds at the time! Image courtesy of Dave McCarter (©Dave McCarter)
In 2004 the RASC Calgary Centre organized a transit expedition, during which Mike Mah was able to take both this image of Venus transiting, and that of the sculpture of Hatshepsut to create a very effective composite picture.
