Here's the video (https://vimeo.com/44025042)put together from the 5h or so of imaging. 30s interval but for the end 4s interval. The Jump in Venus smooth motion in the middle is the meridian flip. It didn't take long though. More like a F1 pit stop racing :P
You can see loads of clouds just before the end. That kept the blood pumping!... then it cleared in time and I got the 3rd and 4th contact in slow motion at 2s intervals. :)

Jokes aside you reckon PI DBE would be able to isolate that if you pick reference points within the disc? It never dawned on me to take flats when imaging the sun.

Thanks again Matt. :thumbsup:
:lol: Yeah TBH I completely forgot about it until I put the sequence together and watched the video the first time. I really liked the smooth motion of Venus, until it jumped then I remembered why. :P I also think it was a good idea to shoot the exit in 2s intervals. Remember the DSLRs shooting away in the end. Sounded like SRS cicadas ;)
