    Venus by day and Gregs tip
    From: Paul Jackson
    Date: 2016 Nov 24, 02:11 -0800

    Hi to the team at NavList,

    After corresponding with Greg Rudzinski regarding shooting Venus by day using a Whole Horizon Mirror, I followed his tip of using a horizon shade to cut down the glare. Here is the data from the shot.

    GMT = 24d 01h 57m 56 sec

    Hs = 70°49'.0"

    Known Position = 36°47'.0" South 174°46'.6" East

    Height of Eye = 6'4"

    I.C. -2.0

    GMT Date = 24/11/2016  Temp 20.4 ° c    Pres = 1017 hPa

    I use HO :229 and the 2016 Nautical Almanac for a long hand result and Star Pilot gave me 0.3 towards 057°.5' T

    Kind Regards, Paul w Jackson.
