Moon and Venus

Moon and Venus at dawn

Here are two photos of the close pairing of the Moon and Venus at dawn on the morning of 27 January 1995. The wide angle photo was taken w/ Pentax K1000 using a 135mm f/2.5 lens, 200 ISO Kodak film. Exposure not known exactly (but somewhere around 2 seconds). The second exposure (close up) was through a Celestron 500mm F6.3 Maksutov telephoto lens. Location was my front yard in Oakdale, CT USA. I remember being very cold standing outside at 5:30am while taking these photos!
