Venus & Mars 6/7/2010

Decided to image Venus in the daytime and try to get mars in the daytime also. Was able to find Venus pretty easy, but seeing was kinda bad. No detail. I imaged Venus around 6pm local time (10:00UT). It was just too bright to find Mars, so I wasn't able to find it till around 8:30pm local time.

 

Mars is getting pretty tiny up there. I had to resample 1.5x for the image. Seeing improved a bit and I was surprised that I was able to get some sort of detail out of the image.
