Details:
This morning I wanted to take pictures of the moon, Venus and, if possible, Mercury. I had my Canon 80D attached to a tripod and several lenses ready. At first, I just photographed moon and Venus. Later I tried to get the Mercury on the photo. He stood at the shots very low on the horizon, only about 2 degrees high. Luckily I had a good view of the horizon and was able to see Mercury from 7.00 oclock in my 7x50 Fujinon binoculars.

It was cold, we only had 34°F (1°C), but no clouds. The Venus was very bright, she had - 4m85.
The exposure is 0.8 sec., aperture 5.0 - 1600 ISO, at 52 mm focal length (zoom 28 - 135 mm)
