Briga Township, Tabuk, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Canon 6D Camera and a Carl Zeiss 135mm telephoto lens.

Realised the Moon might be near Mercury and Saturn, and I confirmed it with my binoculars. I quickly set up my equipment and captured the event before the sky got too bright. Pity I didn't get up earlier and get it in a darker sky. Unfortunately I had to skip my breakfast and dash off to work.
