Blogging 365, Day 21: The Moon and Jupiter

Tonight we had another cool celestial event in which Jupiter appeared to be pretty close to the moon. I had two telescopes and three cameras outside with me and despite it appearing close to the naked eye, it was difficult to get them in the same frame with a telescope.

And I experimented with the cameras and several settings on each in order to capture the moment. Well, I gave it the old college try and this was the best I could come up with after all of the shots I took (click for slightly larger version). I did just a little enhancing with Photoshop to darken the moon as it was a bit bright in the original shot.
