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.
