Venus, mercury, jupiter & mars


Recommended Posts

2nd attempt to shoot recent conjunction of 4 planets. Had an attempt on Thursday 12th, but couldn't get mars in with the telephoto. Two mornings of cloud and rain, then this morning managed again using the EOS 1000 with a 50mm lens.

Stellarium insert showing details. Slightly out of focus, unfortunately, used jpeg with slight Gimp tweak to reduce background light to match the observation at the time.

0.5 sec exposure, ISO 400, f2.

Taken in rural Waikato, near Hamilton, new Zealand. 15/05/2011 06:15
