Moon/Mars/Jupiter Conjunction

I finally got a clear skies morning with a temperature of 40° F (4.4° C). I have been waiting for this morning for a while and it turned out nicely. I just had to travel to the end of my driveway to get this 24% crescent moon (with Earthshine)/ Mars/ Jupiter conjunction. It was well worth getting up at 4:20 am. This is a cropped image with setting on the Canon Rebel T7i and Rokinon 85mm lens of 1 second, ISO 100, f/4. I hope you enjoy this my second image of 2018.
