Astrophotography - Planetary Conjunction

Object: Planetary Conjunction - The Moon, Jupiter, Venus, Pleiades, Taurus
Date: 24-Mar-2012
  • Canon EOS Rebel XT with Canon zoom lens

Wide-field un-tracked long-exposure photograph of conjunction of solar system objects and constellations.

The image was taken on a tripod mount. It was cropped, and no other processing was done, except for adding the labels on the second image.
After taking the picture of the moon, Jupier, Venus and the Pleiades, I found that I got a bonus image of the constellation of Taurus!
