Nikon D50, Nikon 80-400 Zoom. 1/60 second at F5.6. ISO1600. The first picture taken just before immersion, the second about half-way through. I was lucky to get the second, as I was checking focus when I noticed Venus dimming as it disappeared, and had to fumble for the remote control.

This is a composition of 3 images from 3 movies shoot with a DMK31AF03.AS camera behind a SkyWather 80/400 refractor. It was hard to obtain something good because of the lot of clouds.
