looking at planets in the daytime…

today was a very nice-Venus in the daytime blue sky kind of day- so we opened up the observatory and looked at Mercury and Venus.

Mercury was a fine little crescent and was uber cool to look at.  Venus was an orb, and not so interesting.

Pinhole photo of the observatory.  Made with a 4 x5  pinhole camera, Ilford FP4 film, 6 second exposure.

Hand developed in Arista chems for 7 minutes…just in case you were wondering.
