Well, I guess I’ll throw in my meager attempt from last night. I thought clouds were going to spoil the show, but they broke up enough to get a few shots in. Between dodging power lines! (Tonight is a different thing!)

It's totally clear tonight here...  :p of course! I did some visual again tonight just to enjoy it. While smoking a spiral ham. Primitive smells and views!

Greats images, everyone.

Well, finally, we had some decent seeing tonight in Chicago. Was out 1.5 hours in 35 F. Yesterday was all clouds. I'll begin my multi-image editing when my hands thaw enough to move without pain.

"Smoked Ham and the Conjunction" might break the internet. Bacon and conjunction could also.

A day late (dang clouds!). Here's mine. The four largest Galilean moons of Jupiter (top L to bottom R); Europa, Callisto, Io and Ganymede are visible. Saturn's moons were too dim and too small to resolve properly. Can't wait until 2080 when this happens again!

The best I could do without a telescope. Nikon D500, 600mm f/4 ED-IF AIS Nikkor and TC-300 2x. Total magnification (over full frame) is 36x

It is very nice to see so many photos in this thread. I like them all. I also did something to contribute to the thread. From my backyard Jupiter + Saturn were not visible behind tree line at the time when planets can be photographed. So, I built a plywood platform on metal sawhorses and moved up tripod on it. Put mount and telescope on the tripod. On December 19 (night time) polar aligned the scope and on December 20 took dozen 1K frames video files. I had around 30-35 minutes to take shots before planets dove behind the trees. Next day processed them in RegiStax to see if I got anything. On December 21 I had already 20-25 minutes work time and again took dozen 1K frames videos. You can imagine how carefully I was fluttering around flimsy construction and holding my breath (I regret I did not take picture of the whole setup). Processed videos in RegiStax and in Photoshop blended singles to reveal both planets and their moons. First picture taken on December 20 17:34 PST. Jupiter moons from top down: Callisto, Ganymede, Io, Europa. Saturn moons: upper is Rhea, lower is Titan. Second picture taken on December 21 17:04 PST. Jupiter moons: Callisto, Io, Ganymede on Jupiter's disk transition (look at the small dark dot on Jupiter's disk!). And again Rhea and Titan besides Saturn.
Gear used: iEQ-45 Pro mount, Orion 8"RC telescope, CCDT67 focal reducer, ASI ZWO290MC camera.

Thank you Inspeqtor. Especially I am very proud to get visible Ganymede transition on Jupiter's face (second picture). When I was recording video, I did not know about the transit. I was not really sure I will get something visible because planets were close to horizon and high atmospheric turbulence.
