Great Conjunction of Venus and Jupiter, December 23, 2020

December 24, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

With rain and cloud on tap for the next several days yesterday was my last opportunity to take photographs of the Great Conjunction of Venus and Jupiter. They are separating quickly now, quite a difference even from yesterday. I went directly to my chosen observing spot and took my last photographs. I shot at F8 at 3000mm from 1/4 second exposure to 1/400 second exposure, 6400 ISO.

The Galilean moons were from the top; Io and Europa above Jupiter and Callisto below Jupiter. Ganymede was further below Jupiter. Saturn was tilted so with its rings it showed an oblique shape.
