He got more than he bargained on June 6, 2012, for because he was also able to shoot the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) as it raced across the Sun just above the planet Venus.
Legault stated, "My Nikon D4 digital camera was working at 10 [frames per second] on a Takahashi FSQ-106ED telescope to record 9 images of [the Hubble Space Telescope] during its 0.9s transit." [MailOnline, below]
To see the photograph of the Venus/Hubble event, go to Legault's website at "THE 2012 TRANSIT OF VENUS...AND THE HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE".
He states on the webpage, "This transit of the HST (Hubble Space Telescope) was taken from Queensland, Australia, simultaneously with the 2012 transit of Venus on June 6th, at 01:42:25 UTC. Thanks to the continuous shooting mode of the Nikon D4 DSLR running at 10 fps, 9 images of the HST were recorded during its 0.9s transit (1/8000s, 100 iso, raw mode). Turbulence was moderate to high."
And, "HST distance to observer: 750 km. Speed: 7.5 km/s. HST maximum size: 13m. Instrument: Takahashi FSQ-106ED refractor on EM-11 mount with Baader Herschel prism and FFC amplifier. Transit forecast (place, time) calculated with www.calsky.com."
