Moon and Jupiter

A great image of the moon and Jupiter (upper left of moon).  From Sky and Telescope, "Although they look close together, the Moon is only 1.3 light-seconds distant from Earth, while Jupiter is 1,700 times farther away at a distance of 37 light-minutes."  Couldn't have said it better myself. 
Taken with a Canon DSLR and 100 ISO.  Less than one second exposure time and focused as good as I could get it from Lubbock, TX on January 21, 2013.
