Image Details:

My goal was to shoot the 4 planet alignment with the crescent moon filling the gap between Venus and Jupiter so I brought out the fisheye lens. The difficult part was finding a location where I had a low enough view of the eastern horizon to see Mercury before it faded into the rising sunlight.
