I had been getting up early for several days to observe Venus and Jupiter approaching conjunction on 13 November. I carried on my routine as the Moon got in on the act, culminating in a beautiful view on 17 November of both planets forming a neat triangle with the one per cent lit Moon. The shot is made up of 10 images taken one minute apart and stacked using StarStaX software.
