  This morning (January 6, 2013) I made this photograph of the Moon close to the Planet Saturn. Below the two is the Star Zubenelgenubi (really a double Star). I used a Cannon 60Da camera with a Baader Vario Finder (61 x 250) as a telephoto lens. A 2.5 second exposure at f 4.1 and an ISO setting of 200. This image was made at 5:42 AM CST. Camera on tripod method.
