Moon, Venus, Mercury, and Jupiter

Here's a photo of the dual conjunction that just happened this evening. In the upper left are the Moon and Venus. In the lower right are Mercury and Jupiter (Jupiter is slightly brighter on the right).

It was shot with a Canon EOS 40D at ISO 1600. The lens was a Canon EF28-135 IS lens. It was shot at 35mm and F4.5 at 1/10 second.

Some minor processing was done in Photoshop (just tone curves and resampling to half resolution).

Happy new year!
