To the naked eye the planets looked like one point of light, but as soon as you magnified the view with a camera lens you could just make out the tiny separation between them.
I again chose my favourite house across the road to take the wide field image of the planets above their home, because it looked so pretty with all there Christmas lights on display, the children who live there will be so excited when I show them these pictures :-)
It would have been wonderful to have captured the event with my telescope, but it was not to be, I just had to make do with running up and down the street to find a good place to take pictures and dodging all the trees, house roofs and clouds…and I did it :-))
The images were taken with a Canon 70D camera and a Tamron 18-400mm lens on a tripod; the first image was an exposure of 3.2 seconds and ISO400. With the second image I attached a 2x convertor to make a focal length of 1280mm with an exposure of 0.6 second and ISO1600 the image is cropped.
