Observing location
Crawley West Sussex
Sony SLT 65a
1/60 f5.6 iso 1600 Crop of larger frame

Shot through  bedroom window  on a fixed  tripod  . Venus was  visible naked eye  for about  ten minutes before the exposure was made but I had to wait until the last possible moment  as the  planets  sank toward the  tree tops  before it was possible to  tweek  mercury out of the bright sky
