Moon and Venus Imaging Session - April 1, 2011

As I return from my provincial work trip, I saw a beautiful thin crescent Moon rising low from the eastern horizon. Amid my tiredness from the long bus trip, I quickly brought out my Canon EOS 500D DSLR with EF 100-400mm IS L lens on sturdy tripod and make some short exposures of the Moon. I also image the Earthshine that was easily visible amid the brightening morning sky.

Before packing up and get some rest, I saw the planet Venus popping out behind the building and also made a shot of it at 100mm focal length before wrapping up the session.
