Here is my first ever intentional daytime Venus lunar by DSLR camera using a 200mm lens. The pixel multiplier is .0982moa/px through the full field of view. The image will need zooming to see Venus right next to my port shroud at the far right of the attached image. The odd thing is that I couldn't measure the lunar distance by sextant even though a pair of 7x50mm binoculars showed both the Moon and Venus together within the field of view. This is an unexpected advantage of the DSLR over a sextant.
