"One of these is very large and a long way away, the other is much smaller but nearby" 

"No I'm still not getting it Ted"

Composite of two images at different exposures to accommodate the wide dynamic range of luminosity of the two bodies. Canon 600D Canon camera with an EOS 90-300mm. telephoto lens at f=300mm.  on a fixed tripod.

Awesome shot! It is just unbelievable how much larger Jupiter actually is.

I tried to do a similar shot but didn't get a good image, yet.

Thank you for your kind comment! It is a shame Jupiter and Saturn are so low in the sky this year. I cannot use my big refractor on its pier to get  close up video of either planet. My neighbour's roofs get in the way. I might try with my 90mm Mak on a Star Adventurer mount. Less aperture but more mobility may win the day!

Best regards George.
