C6 (0.15m, F/10 SCT), x2 Barlow, EOS 550D
1/800s, ISO 800

I like following Venus through inferior conjunction in the daytime sky. This was taken using a Canon EOS550D shooting 50fps 640x480 centre crop video (native pixels) at the back of a C6 with a x2 Barlow. The video this comes from is around 3 mins long and the seeing is absolutely dreadful. There are only three frames I could extract that looked half decent and this is the best of them!
