    Re: Venus in daylight
    From: Tibor Miseta

    I may stay in a very lucky location, but I can see Venus and tha past days the Moon together in daylight easily (very positive when the Sun is at about 8-10° altitude). I've tried to make my first "daylight three body fix" as Frank suggested, but run into a problem: I was not able to measure the daylight Venus with my Link A-12. In direct view I could not see the bubble, in indirect view I could not see the Venus. In direct view I tried to use a strong torch, illuminating directly the bubble chamber, but still had just some rough idea where the bubble could be ... A measurement that was so inaccurate that was not suitable for a fix.

    Does anybody know the trick, how could be a daylight Venus measured with a Link A-12?

    Or with a marine sextant on land? (normal water or oil artfificial horizon won't help, I guess)
