Transit of Venus as seen from Denver, Colorado
Jun 6, 2012

I was surprised to find the skies clear for most of the passage yesterday afternoon (5June2012). The forecast was for cloudy weather so I tried to take advantage of unobstructed views of the sun. I am even more impressed when some wisps of clouds started to show as I think it adds something to the overall image. See what you think.

I took this with the 7D and stacked Canon telextenders, the 2X and 1.4X, on my 500mm lens. I tried all combinations of ISOs, shutter speeds and fstops to see if I could hold the setup steady.
