Nikon 1 V3, with 6.7-13mm lens @ 8.5mm (23mm 35mm-equivalent FOV), Manfrotto tripod & ball head; 30sec @ f/5.0 and 200 ISO.
On the evening of closest approach of Venus & Jupiter, I tried to setup my tripod to have a view of the event near my neighborhood and some foreground of interest. There were clouds but, in this case, I used them to try and add some drama.
