Transit of Venus photos

Nikon D3100 at 200mm, f5.6, half second exposure & shot through a solar filter. Venus is clearly visible near the bottom edge of the sun, in the centre.

Nikon D3100 at 200mm, f36 and no filter! Shot using the "live view" screen in order to avoid looking directly at the sun. Venus is just visible at the edge of the cloud.

  1. Incredible! I never thought I'd be able to see this planet so close.
