Had slightly better seeing, but some high thin stuff that killed the color.
C-8 @ f/30 no filters.
E100 SW ~1 second Hat trick
Now I need to order some more E6

Shooting planets on film is difficult, but this photo is one of the best images of the conjunction I've seen! Thanks for sharing!!!

I think nailing the Hat Trick is one of the key things, Even with a solid mounting there is a tiny bit of vibration from the shutter that can wash out any detail.
That and getting some luck with the seeing helps, and not being afraid to waste two or three 36 exposure rolls for a couple decent images.
