Venus and the Crescent Moon over the City

My son Jacob and I went to Sydney Observatory on Saturday night to watch the Phil Plait talk, “Death from the Skies”. It was a great talk – really enjoyable.Плиты мощения

After the talk, we headed out onto Observatory Hill and took some photos of the beautiful Crescent Moon and Venus in the west. Jacob was my model for the first one. Venus is over his right shoulder.

Settings for the first two – Canon 6D, 24-105mm lens, ISO1000, f/7.1, 5s exposures.

And now a tighter view – I actually don’t mind the diffraction spikes on Venus in this one.

Canon 6D, 200mm, ISO5000, f/7.1, 1s exposure.

Thanks for looking.
