10 Days of Nearness.

For the last couple of weeks, venus and jupiter had stolen the attention of astrophotographers! They were inching close to one another, slowly but surely. I was lucky enough to capture their relative movement for the last 10 days.

Another interesting find for me was the ever changing hue of the sky after sunset! They do add a lot to the final image.

I used the same set of equipment, Nikon D5600, Sigma 50mm and Benro Rhino Tripod throughout. The aperture was maintained at f/2.8 and ISO was kept 200 for all the images. Shutter speed varied from 1/3 seconds to 1 second, depending on the lighting condition. All the images were taken at a similar time, between 6:10 PM to 6:20 PM IST.

Hope you enjoy the proximity!
