Moon & Jupiter
Observing location
Warrington, Cheshire, UK
Sony RX100
f/4.9 1/13sec ISO 3200

Rose early (03.45) in the hope of getting a shot of the last quarter Moon with Saturn and Jupiter and maybe Mars. Unfortunately, the Moon did not rise over the rooftops until 04.20 when the sky was brightening. A thin covering of haze added to the fun. Hence a far from clear shot, and of the planets only Jupiter is visible.
