    I thought the moon looked pretty cool tonight, so I took a pic. Can anybody tell me what is next to the moon tonight? It looks too large and bright to be a star, so I'm assuming it's a planet. Any ideas?

    Anyways, the settings for the pic I took were 4", f10, ISO 100. Here it is.

    Looking at this site, it's Venus. I saw the moon tonight as well and was going to go out to get a shot, but I got my pj's on already:lol:

    Venus is easily identifiable as the brightest object in the sky, other than the sky and moon. (Hahah - one of the two or three things I remember from my JuCo "Astronomy" course I took - it was ALL math! Ugh!)

    Cool i just got done dorking around with my settings and took some pics. Didn't like what i got so i came in to read up on Astro's moon guide. by the time i got it all set up right the moon was hazy so i missed out tonight but i will hit it up tomorrow i think i have the settings figured out.

    Settings (f/3.5, ISO 1600, 1/2.5) J

    It would be a good shot if it wasn't for the power lines, noise, and lens flare
