Image Details:

I am still on vacation in Cuba, and tonight I (with difficulty) observed the conjunction of Venus and Neptune in my 70 mm refractor at the end of evening twilight.

Earlier, I captured the Moon (with Earthshine) and Venus, about 25 minutes after sunset. I used my Canon SL1 with a zoom lens set to about 100 mm.
