A couple of quick hand held Jupiter and Venus Conjunction shots (30/6/15)

Recommended Posts

Here's a couple of quick hand held shots from yesterday (30/6/15) of the conjunction. Not sure why I was too lazy to get the tripod out and do a proper job... anyhow here they are (might need to zoom in a bit on the wide shot to actual see the planets!).

Both taken with a Canon EOS700D with a 50mm EF lens.

The upload compression does take a bit away from them.

Too much wispy cloud to get anything tonight...

Cheers,

Rob

Hi Rob,

I was thinking of buying a 700d.  How's it working out for you?

Cheers,

I like the 700D. It's a good all round entry level DSLR. I use it for everything not just a astro but it is also really light so if weight is an issue on your scope it ticks that box. I find it really good in low light as well.

Cheers

Rob
