Venus-Jupiter-Trifid Conjunction over Mt Warning

This image is of last nights conjunction between Jupiter and Venus, as well as the Lagoon and Trifid nebulae, as they set over Mt Warning in northern NSW.

Jupiter's largest moon Ganymede is also visible at the lower left of Jupiter.

I used a modified Canon 6D and a Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 Sports at 120mm F3.2. The foreground is a stack of 3 untracked photos ISO 3200 30 sec and the sky a stack of 5 tracked photos.

The sky was stacked in AstroPixelProcessor and the foreground median stacked in Photoshop.

Intermittent cloud and smoke from local bushfires made for challenging photo selection and editing - this is without doubt the most difficult image I've ever created.

Better quality version on Astrobin ...
