Jupiter & Saturn Conjunction
Just got done editing an image of Jupiter plus it's moons and Saturn. My fingers almost froze solid from being out an hour and a half.
On December 22, 2020, the clouds finally parted enough for a view of the great planetary conjunction. The day before the pair would have appeared even closer together. In reality, Jupiter and Saturn were 600 million miles apart.
The Jovian moons (top to bottom) of Europa, Calisto, Io and Ganymede are visible. Saturn's moons were too dim and too small to resolve properly with my equipment.
Canon 5D3 DSLR with Canon 400mm L 5.6 plus a Canon 1.4x TC were used to get this image. 1/15 sec., F8.0 at ISO 2000.
PLEASE post yours in this thread if you have one. Would love to see what you all got of this rare event.
