the last minute I reached near Stuttgart a cloud free space. In less than 10
min I was positioning and adjusting the telescope to the north booting up the
notebook, starting the web cam by coordinating Venus with
sun distance. Probably a new world record for establishing a focal projection.
The cloud free gap near Stuttgart held on
disappearance of Venus, for seconds!!! Afterwards rain clouds stopped every
further try. Following another free space in the sky to observe
the exit of Venus was senseless because the next shower sabotaged each attempt

Well at least one of the seldom observations in Germany and real
photographic action during this
lousy weather conditions.
Correct!! Even I stood somewhere with
Eurasburg / Friedberg and had
for my surprise
a cloud gap
free view upward. Notice: Five minutes before there
was a thunderstorm which made it impossible to leave the car. Unfortunately
the air humidity was so high, so that the moon crescent was over beamed. After
a quarter hour
I had to give up….
Nearly under conjunction of Venus
