Image Details:

Jupiter and Saturn are now only about 13 hours away from the Great Conjunction's appulse and they are appearing a mere 0° 07’ 09” apart. This allows both of their moon collections to be viewed in a single telescope.
The planets have been intentionally overexposed in these images to better show their natural satellites.
