Jupiter / Saturn conjunction

Here is my pic of the Jupiter / Saturn conjunction from Sunday (20th Dec) night.
I took this because I think Monday night (21st) will be cloudy.
I tried a few different settings but this was Ok. Can’t see Saturns rings - too faint but you can see some of Jupiters moons.
Also both planets must be far away at the moment as their brightness is relatively low. Both were also too low for my large telescope (in the dome).
I just used the camera on a tripod with a 300 mm telephoto lens.

Did manage to get a couple of glimpses in between the clouds but was getting quite low. Still happy enough that I got to see it, very cool indeed.
