Image Details:

I just wanted to "proof" Venus is a planet travelling through the Pleiades seven sisters (M45). Venus is very bright and so forms the starlike lookout in the lenses of the camera.
Exposure time was 5s with f=3.5 and ISO 1800. Camera was in startracking mode using Sky watcher star adventurer drive.
