    Moon, Jupiter and Venus

    Not the best shot. The wind was blowing the camera on the tripod. I made Jupiter and Venus a little bigger so you could see them better.

    It's getting crowded at that end of the sky, huh?

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    I am rain/snow logged here in Ohio, can't even find then with the binoculers let alone the 700! Thought maybe I would try the 700 with a Minolta lens and shoot through my Minolta 10X50 'field glasses' have had them for over 10 years still bright crisp and sharp. maybe make me some kind of strange optic trinity. Might be worth checking with a astronomy web site, I wonder if the 3 objects will stack up at some point in the next day or so?

    Maybe you should tie a string on your finger to help you remember. I will be 91. Sony better come out with some real good SSS by then. LOL What was I thinking. I am going out now to take a few more. I don't think I will ever get another shot at this.

    Damn, I didn't know.
    Frank, it seems only you and Dragon were on the ball. Next time give us the heads up sooner.
