A very slim Moon, not far from Saturn – December 27, 2019

Scroll down to content

A short trip for some other interests (in the region of the Comana Woods) allowed myself and my brother-in-law to get some nice views of the not too-often viewed young Moon after sunset. Pretty hard to spot it, with cirrus clouds and not so good transparency. Only home did I noticed that Saturn was also spotted in some of the frames.

The Moon had only a 2.2% phase !

Equip: 127mm Maksutov and Canon 6D for detailed shot, and Canon 70-200mm L lens with the same camera for the conjunction shot.
