Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction

I guess because news stations were desperate to talk about something that wasn't the ongoing plague, the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction around Dec 20 was hyped up to be some incredible event. What it really meant was two dots of light in the sky were closer together than they have been in a few hundred years. I mean, astronomically interesting, but not exactly world changing.

Anyway, we got out our dinky binoculars and took a look and I managed to catch some of Jupiter's moons on my camera with my 200mm lens. And then I turned my camera to the moon since I was out there already.

Not particularly sharp, but you can make out some craters pretty well.
