Transit of Venus_Large

OK, this one was processed simply to yield a large print. The original image file has been downsized here for the web but I think it does give a fair impression of the printed version on my wall. Note that this is a product of using stacked 1.4x + 2x tele-extenders on a Canon 600mm lens, a ridiculous 29 lens elements! yielding 1680mm focal length. The wobbly shape of Venus is caused by atmospheric seeing, changes from instant to instant.
For more stuff peruse my primary website:

Canon EOS 1Ds
1680mm iso200 1/2500s f/16 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original auto
