Just I was giving up with shooting the close encounter between the inner planets due to the dense front of clouds, a large clearing at the western horizon made me hope for a possible chance of still seeing the event.
Driving just a few kilometers south from my home, into a large field, I got the chance I was hoping for: the two planets shinned just above the horizon, in between the clouds.
The following images were acquired with the TS 65Q APO refractor (65mm, F/6.5) and Canon 550D at ISO400, with exposure times ranging from 2 to 10 seconds.

You never give up. Doing what has to be done, against all elements. 😀 Great photos!
Thanks Clau! Regarding the elements…be aware that next week the weather is improving 😉
