The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Mars!


Recommended Posts

Got up again before dawn to capture some shots of the morning planetary action. This time, Jupiter and Mars were intimately close (about 38 arc minutes apart)! The first shot is at prime focus through my 127mm Mak-Cass and the other two are with a 300x zoom lens:

This is the most astronomy I've ever done during the pre-dawn hours. There is a peacefulness that I cannot describe at that time of morning. It's worth getting up at 4:30 a.m. to experience it (sometimes, lol).

Clear skies!
Reggie :D
