Canon 5DII, 400mm lens, tripod.
On March 26 the Moon was in conjunction with Venus. Due to the Moon parallax the moon was even closer when seen from the south hemisphere. From my location in Buenos Aires, Argentina the separation was just less than 1 degree, a great sight with the naked eye and a very nice portrait for a photo.
