I was lucky to catch Venus and Pleiades together. It was the first time I've seen such a close conjunction of a planet with pleiades. I took several pictures which are tracked by hand under city lights, however, later while stacking the images, I stacked a few old clear pictures also to show the nebulosity a little. All where taken with Canon EOS 500d and Sigma 70-300 Apo dg.
