Canon 400D with Canon 24mm f2.8 lens mounted on fixed tripod. Four second exposure at f2.8 and ISO400.
The crescent moon was a little to the lower left of Mercury on the evening of August 11, 2010. A little higher in the sky, Mars, Venus and Saturn formed a nice triangle. Porrima, Zaniah and Zavijava in the constellation Virgo can also be seen nearby.
