This first one is with a 180 mm refractor and a ZWO ASI 290 planetary imaging camera.  No Barlow or Powermate, so I could get them both in the same frame.

Hi Jim, Thanks for posting pictures of this! We  had cloudy skies in Pa. in my location. We could see nothing.

Hi Steve:

Thanks!  I think I was really lucky for this time of the year!

Unfortunately it was overcast over my location on the 21st!  Didn't clear up any until long after Jupiter and Saturn had sunk below the horizon, but I went ahead and got out on the 22nd.  Kind of a day late and time short, I had about 20 minutes to try to get an image before they would be in the "no zone" again.   Used the latest greatest OSC with a 462c sensor and an F4 12" Newtonian I was still able to fit both planets in the senor frame on the 22nd.

That's really nice Mark.  I love the moons.  Jim
