Venus under the Pleiades M45 Cluster

Venus under the Pleiades M45 Cluster

Taken on 2012-04-02, I was lucky to get a hole in the usual Vernon cloud cover this time of year. Canon EOS T2i fixed tripod mounted, 16 seconds, ISO 1600, 55mm zoom lens, f/5.6. Wish I had more clear nights for this wonderful alignment as the Pleiades is a most beautiful wonder to stare at!
