Hi Finbarr, 

I hope you're keeping well. That's a brilliant picture of Saturn and Jupiter so close to each other. Also, with the backdrop of all those lovely stars it makes the image all the more special. Very nice indeed. 

Clear skies, 

Darren.

Thanks Darren. I agree, the presence of foreground objects and accompanying stars make all the difference in a conjunction shot like this. Helps to bring context and perspective to the scene. It's difficult though, what with neighbouring farm lights, obstructions, low cloud etc. Hope you find a suitable spot in Dublin from which to view the spectacle.

Finbarr.

Thanks a million Finbarr!

Of course, the foreground objects also add to shot. I must bear that in mind if I do take a photo of the conjunction. 

Clear skies to all, 

Darren.

Some focusing issues tonight between the heavy showers, so had to make do with this widefield effort. 20 arcminutes separation.

Wow! Stunning, Finbarr.
Great image from Limerick.
Thank you.
I can see parts of Capricornus above Jupiter and Saturn.
We hope to see these enormous planets during the next 3 or 4 nights.

Clear skies from Aubrey.

Very short window this evening before the cloud and rain moved in. Had to resort to the 300mm lens, less than half an hour after sunset. Separation 15 arcminutes -
