    Ed, 

    If a telescope is x4 then a digital camera will give a good enough image for pixel counting to get a distance up to about 6°. See attached image of Moon Venus which shows a pixel count of 3344 between the bodies. At  .0982' moa per pixel calibration for the 200mm lens used a lunar distance of 5° 28.4' is calculated.

    Try entering the lunar distance into Frank's calculator using:

    UT 03:01:40  4/18/2018  Lat 34° 10.4' N  Lon 119° 13.8' W  60° F  30.00 in  Height of Eye 7ft.  Near Limb Moon Venus distance 5° 28.4'
