Details:
The western sky looked so pretty yesterday evening with a new crescent Moon making a lovely conjunction with Jupiter, then Mercury and Venus below them on the ecliptic. The sky was so clear that you could capture the three moons of Jupiter around the planet with just a camera and lens on a tripod :-)

Photo taken at my observatory at Leyburn with a Canon 70D and a 100-400mm lens set at 260mm, exposure was 1.6 seconds and SO 800.
