60mm Bushnell SkychiefII @ 53x Canon 1000D DSLR 9"x16" drawing pad
Picture of Venus transiting the Sun from Muskego, Wisconsin. I used a 60mm refractor at 53x to project an image of the Sun and Venus onto a piece of 9"x16" drawing paper. Then I used my DSLR to take a picture. It was edited in Photoshop for color and contrast.
