3" f/5 refractor with homemade mylar filter over the objective lens to reduce the sunlight intensity. Canon 350D SLR camera at prime focus. 1/60s exposure. Venus is close to the end of its transit (by about 15mins). Photo from Bath racecourse at 5.40am (BST), and about 50 mins after sunrise, against the backdrop of a lot of light cloud as is apparent in the image.
