After a long drive (to escape rain and cloud) from the Boston area to Lake Champlain, Vermont arrived just in time (5 minutes) to set up the 70mm refractor (TeleVue Pronto).There was a large clear area of sky to the north-west. Swapped between visual observing at 69x and imaging with a DSLR. This image taken at ISO 400 and 1/250 second. The time was 2012 June 5 at 22:22:49 UT. This was about a minute and a half after theoretical time of 2nd contact.
