|Venus and contrail taken on 1 July at 18:19 ACST, 2013, Canon IXUS at ASA 400, 4 seconds exposure. Click to embiggen.||Almost equivalent view in Stellarium. I juggled the scale, but it still doesn't quite match the actual picture. I had to set the Light Pollution to 5 in View Sky (F4) to get the star intensities to mostly match (Venus and Procyon don't match still). Click to embiggen.|
Another nice shot of Venus. Missed Venus and the Beehive
yesterday due to going to my sons' award ceremony
, and tonight due to rain. Thought I'd use this opportunity to match the Stellarium view to the actual view, so you can get a better feel for how stellariuym matches the twilight intensity.
