i took these images with my new 70-200 L (f4) and the Sigma 17-70 (f 2.8) now that I have better skies. The 17-70 was bought a few weeks ago to see if I can get a single good photo of the MWay although I know with all the LP we have it is going to be difficult. In the meantime, until I get to that goal, here is Venus.
Most of the photos are cropped although not at the same degree. Setting in manual, changing almost always the exposure, ISO almost always 200. Exposures from 0.5 sec to 15 sec.
