Anyone managed to get the Jupiter and Saturn conjunction on 21 December 2020?
Here is a view as capture from Cape Town during a slight breezy south-easter.

I went for a drive to find a spot where I could see the stars. Tried some pics but haven't looked at them yet.
Thanks for sharing KSD!

I watched from my garden, for a few nights, and got the following not very good pics, but the sequence interests me.

Sadly last night there was too much cloud and I only got a glimpse with the binoculars but Saturn was well below Jupiter, and tonight there was cloud and no sighting at all.

It looks like you captured some of the moons, KSD.
