p.1 #1 · Venus Transit


This only happens twice every 100+ years. I decided not to miss this one:







Venus is large disc in corner, just starting transit, other blotches are solar sun spots, which are getting more regular with another solar maximum at peak next year (every 12-13 years)

Gear is 7D + 1000/10 (Celestron C90) + solar filter
Effective focal length: 1600mm @f/10 (full frame photo)
ISO 800, Shutter 800 (I think)

Nicely done.
Very crisp edges.
Should look very nice framed and printed.

Thanks everyone!

The C90 is a manual focus lens, so I thought I'd have better luck nailing focus with the 7D's LiveView (and getting an extra .3x 'extension' as well as higher resolution than my Mark2n bodies)

But as it turns out, trying to look at live view, when you're effectively facing the sun, is still a challange. I cranked up the viewfinder brightness and zoomed in 10x, but still had to rig a makeshift hood over me and the camera body to see the detail better.
