Description

This image is of last nights conjunction between Jupiter and Venus, as well as the Lagoon and Trifid nebulae, as they set over Mt Warning in northern NSW in Australia

Jupiter's largest moon Ganymede is also visible at the lower left of Jupiter.

I used a modified Canon 6D and a Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 Sports at 120mm F3.2. The foreground is a stack of 3 untracked photos ISO 3200 30 sec and the sky a stack of 5 of the best quality tracked photos.

The sky was stacked in AstroPixelProcessor and the foreground median stacked in Photoshop.

Intermittent cloud and smoke from local bushfires made for challenging photo selection and editing.

The next time a similar alignment of Jupiter, Venus and the Lagoon nebula takes place will be 6th June 2043
