This morning the line up of the crescent Moon and Venus was enhanced for us Adelaideans by the ISS shooting between them, true, it did occur at 5:13 in the morning, but it was well worth it. I set up my camera CANON IXUS at ASA 400 with i second exposure, 10 shots automatically taken, but that was too few, so I had to do the rest Manually, hence a bit of wobble in the last few images.
