Convergence: Venus, the Moon and Jupiter, February 25, 2012

I walked into the backyard this evening and was surprised by a fairly nice astro-convergence happening tonight. A waxing moon formed a triangle with Venus to the lower left, and Jupiter to the upper left.

I took a few quick pictures off my back porch. Didn’t have time to do anything to fancy.

Here’s my favorite. Scroll down to see the whole thing.

Tech Notes: Taken on my Nikon D700 with a Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 at about 70mm to get all three objects. ISO was 1600 and aperture was 2.8. Post processing was in Photoshop Elements with only a little sharpening done.
