Still More Images of the "Smiley Fritz"

This beautiful photo of the Venus, Moon, Jupiter conjunction (otherwise known as the "Night of the Smiley Face Fritz") was taken by reader James Fricker of Victoria. You will need to click on the image and enlarge it to see Jupiter though.

This image emphasises that you don't need fancy equipment to take great images of the sky. This was taken with a Konica-Minolta Dimage Z10 3.2M pixel, hand held with short exposure. James must have very steady hands, if I had done something like that the image would be all over the shop.

So let this photo be an inspiration to you, and have a go at imaging some of the upcoming astronomical events of 2009 (like a partial eclipse of the Sun and Moon, and a nice morning conjunction, more info later).

Don't forget the up coming Jupiter occultation by the Moon on the evening of 29 Dec 2008.

G'Day Spacenaut

No, I won't forget, I have already given some details here and I'll be alerting people closer to the event. This will be difficult occultation though.
