The waxing Moon and Jupiter, separated by around 5 deg, taken on January 2, 2012, around 21:45 CET.

No telescope this time, just a Canon 1000D DSLR on a solid tripod. Settings: 1:5.6, ISO 100, Shutter speed 1/20th and 1/40th s, focal length 55 mm (I guess that would be around 90 mm on a 24x36 format camera)
