Jet and Venus on the sun by woodycxd Jet and Venus on the sun by woodycxd
I took this photograph during the 2004 transit of Venus. I was taking a series of shots so I could build a sequence of Venus transiting the sun, I was looking through the viewfinder and luckly I had my motordrive setting turned on. I saw something and pressed the remote trigger and managed to get four frames of a jet crossing the sun at the same time. Canon 300d on a Meade ETX-90 using afocal projection.
