Yesterday evening, the sky finally cleared and I could see the Moon and Jupiter in a close danse :) 

This is a composite of 2 exposures with a Fujifilm X-T3 and XF 100-400mm lens, at 400mm:

  • For the Moon: f/6.4 1/500 ISO400
  • For Jupiter and its moons: f/6.4 1/60 ISO400

I processed the Moon in Photoshop first. Jupiter was barely visible, but not its moons. So I processed another picture (I used exposure bracketing when imaging) in which the Moon was blown out, but Jupiter and its moons were visible. Then I merged both :) 

The view with my binoculars was just amazing! I would say, 50% due to the clouds, who were very brightly lit by the Moon, and created a gorgeous atmosphere.

Nice shot, it was a fine conjunction. 

Now prepare for the same event with Saturn tomorrow night!
