Shot with Nikon D70 using 70-300mm/4-5.6G lens with 5T Close-up attachment. f/22, 1/60 sec, ISO 1000, 90mm (not taking into account 5T).

Venus and Jupiter

Taken around 5:30 this morning w/D70 hooked to telescope. 1000mm, 1.0 sec, f8, ISO 800. I took a longer exposure so the moons of Jupiter would be visible. In retrospect I should have taken a shot which brought out the best of Jupiter and Venus and then blended the two images together.

Venus and Jupiter w/moons

Large Moon

Wow Jerry! They're all great, but that seed pod, talk about your decisive moment, it seems to be bursting right before my eyes. The crater right in the middle of the moon is my favorite crater, Theophilus. Venus and Jupe are cool too.

Theophilus eh? Thanks for the ident, I found this at:

"This crater is about 100 km in diameter and features 5500 m high walls. It is located at 12°S - 26°E on the west side of the Nectaris sea between Madler and Cyrillus craters."

was watching this at 5AM mt. time at A. C. and hoped your night was as clear as mine. How abut the nebula on 3rd star of Orion's belt.
