Canon settings for planetary conjunctions?

Recommended Posts

What ISO, F-stop and shutter speed and exposure need to be to take photos of planetary conjunctions?

For an example we have Mercury and Venus and I would like to image them at 18mm and then 55mm focal length

What settings should that be for each or between 18 and 55mm?

Your not going to get any detail, try Av mode wide open at ISO 100 or 200 and see if it gives a reasonable speed for handheld.
If you have a tripod speed will not matter.
