Pentax K5 with older 210mm Zoom lens at 1.5X conversion factor. Unfiltered except or the cloud cover.


I got this shot of Venus passing in front of the sun, a lucky shot on a very cloudy afternoon. The shot was taken through my grandpa's old Pentax 210mm lens which performs at 1.5 X on my new Pentax K5. Interestingly it was taken with no filter other than just the right amount of clouds. I believe I'm one of very few Edmontonians to see this event. Many sunspots are also visible.
