Rauno Paivinen, Etelä-Karjalan nova

Mercury and Venus met in the sky and photographed them in the afternoon sun. The first image was taken with an eyepiece magnification and a cell phone camera through a small 72/400 lens tube. The marker is marked at the bottom of the image. The distance between the planets was about 55 minutes of arc.

The second size comparison image is taken with C14 and both planets are connected to it.
