Description

Constellation 3 days before closest approach

Jupiter and Saturn including some moons :

Jupiter :

- Callisto (far top left)
- Io (close by)
B) Final : - Ganymed ( inner, top left)

Saturn :
- Titan ( faint at 3 clock postion )
B) final : Rhea ( faint , close by )

I stretched the image to make Saturn moons barely visible,
but, unfortinuately, I forgot to take FLATS.

The variable polarizer tuned to max dim, because of sensitive CCD Cam and sky-glow/sunset
