About this image

Third night in a row seeking an image of the Great Conjunction. Installed my 127mm Mak-Cas in my first floor office and shot through the double glazing, the only way I could get enough elevation. This is the best of fourteen images taken before cloud set in. Hoping for better conditions tomorrow  . . .
