Venus and Uranus.
Observing location
Devisdale, Bowdon, Cheshire.
Canon 6D Camera and a 135mm Carl Zeiss telephoto lens set at f5.6.
0.8s at 6400ASA.

Image taken on March 3rd while I had the opportunity. Closest approach was on March 9th, but there was little chance that the sky would be clear on that night and I was subsequently proven correct. Still the two planets were sufficiently close together on March 3rd to get them both together on the same image.
