We’re about a month from the last rendezvous of the Moon and Venus. I wasn’t planning to get the camera and tripod set up tonight due to the excessive heat. But after the Sun set, I went outside, thought the humidity was somewhat bearable, and decided to give it a try. I was not outside too long, though, as the bugs were ridiculous.
Fortunately I had my image set from last month to use as reference for the camera’s settings. This made tonight’s session easy and quick, as was necessary, as explained above.
