Moon and Jupiter 17/06/19 hand held

Hi all I snapped these shots this morning at 4.30am as I was leaving for work using my Pixel3 hand held .

The first one is zero zoom showing Scorpio's tail to the left , and Antares to the bottom left in the trees , and the moon over exposed with Jupiter just visible in the glare to the left , it was a bit cloudy but all 3 looked good together .

Second is with about 3/4 to max zoom and it shows Jupiter as a disc with Ganymede just visable at about 3 o'clock , not bad for a cell phone hand held at 4.30 am local time . with my motorbike warming up .

Nice. And I always like to have some context pics like those to go with high magnification planetary images.
