In  very gusty  wind and with periods of broken cloud  I was able to observe the  ingress and egress of Aldebaran.

I was very  surprised to  be able to see a Ist Magnitude Star in Broad daylight.  During the  Egress I  ran the  Sony Camera in Video mode and  on play back obtained a time of emergence as 17h 43m 27sec
