Attached are results of a daytime camera Venus lunar using a Canon 10MP Rebel with a 200mm lens. Minutes of arc per pixel on this lens is .0982'. Measured pixels from the Moon's far limb to center Venus is 2800 pixels. Distance comes in at 4° 35.0'. Error in lunar is a respectable 0.3'.
PS This is a rare snap for me getting the daytime Moon as a crescent.
