  • Focal length:

Evening of 22 May 2023 the crescent moon and Venus made a nice visual pair. This is overexposed to show the earthshine on the portion of the moon that is not illuminated by the sun: 200 iso, 1-second exposure with Canon T3i camera and 75-300mm Canon lens set to manual focus and about 135mm focal length. Some minor processing in Digital Photo Professional to remove a small amount of false color.
