And Saturn, shot with a Nikon D7100 and the same Nikkor 55-300 VR zoom:

Un-cropped, Saturn is the tiny dot near center...

Cropped, you can actually see the rings and empty separation between rings and planet.

Nice!

I hope the skies clear enough one of these nights, but so far it's been clouds, rain and fog this month.

The sky was partially obscured this evening, although it was easy to locate the bright conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn.

I hoped to catch a break between the clouds, and I probably did at least a half dozen things wrong, but still managed this highly cropped image:

Last night, I brought my rig to the southern area in my condo complex to view the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction. This would afford me an unobstructed view, along with the added benefit of observing over a grass field. I'm glad I used my lower tier gear (Celestron 90 Mak f/14), because my observations turned into an impromptu Outreach event. I did not know that many people lived in my condo complex...

I only let masked persons to get anywhere near my rig (or me), and tried to keep a social distance mandate to this impromptu gathering.

Anyway, many "oohs" and "ahhs" from young and old alike, and not a one of them had ever looked through a telescope before.

I had the lot of them look through the 26mm Plossl (48x, 1.08* fov, 1.87mm exit pupil), which was more than adequate to present Jupiter with visible equatorial belts and Saturn with clear ring structure and planet/ring gaps. Both planets easily sat within the 26mm Plossl's fov. Being low in the sky, atmospheric conditions really deteriorated the views. At 12mm (104x), the views were poor, but passable. At 6mm (208x), views were challenging and not worth the effort. Jupiter's 4 visible moons were all out, and easily seen by me. I had to walk through my fellow observers. I was able to observe Saturn's moon Titan, but I could only help one other in detecting it.

Total time out was 90 minutes; from 5 PM to 6:30 PM.

Also, while setting up I was treated to a very bright and long duration meteor in my direct line of sight. It traveled North to South, and was breaking up along the way. Beautiful example of a meteor, it looked amazing in the dusk sky. It looked like I could reach out and touch it, it was so crisp and clear. Second best meteor fall I have ever witnessed.

Harm, I shot that image with my Sony A7Riv and the Sony FE 200-600 with the 1.4 extender for about 840mm focal length @ f/9, ISO 640, 1/160th shutter speed and its close to 100% crop. A better approach would have blended at least two images, one exposed for Jupiter and a second exposed to capture Saturn the various moons.

From a technical standpoint, it was fun to capture it. I think I prefer Jason's approach of sharing it with others. I did something similar with one of the solar eclipses when I tethered my camera to a laptop for the detailed view, but we were all standing outside experiencing the eclipse.

Its a lot like what I do as a NASA education volunteer with amateur radio satellites and STEM students.

My new slab, an Epiphone Les Paul Special I P90 LE, there is a LOT OF BANG here for the dollar. Those P90 pickups got some growl, and that satin finish neck is pure joy!

I just finished polishing the frets, clean and oil the fretboard and restrung with Strinjoy Signature 9s.

Two days prior, I leveled and recrowned high spots on 13 frets (yikes), then did the fret and fretboard finishing, this time with D'Addario EXL120BT 9s.

Having loads of fun with my guitars, and planing on #4.
