Much poorer image from 3:39AM EDT 8-2-20 of Saturn-Moon-Jupiter (Saturn above Moon):
Nice picture! Like the tree as background

Nice images !
Thanks! The moon is so bright compared to Jupiter and Saturn. It would be nice if there were a way to lower it's brightness when taking a picture of the three.

Since the OP doesn't seem to mind others posting photos in their thread, I'll post my image from that night. It's a composite of 3 images exposed for the moon, planets, and stars, respectively. The glare immediately around the moon was masked out to show the moon itself but the rest of the glare remains. Even so I managed to reveal stars down to mag 8.5.
