Crescent Moon visits Jupiter and Aldebaran

Images by Wim Filmalter, taken with a Nikon D5100 and a modified 400-mm lens. The bright spot nearest Jupiter is the combined images of Europa and Ganymede; further out lies Callisto. For the most part, Wim writes, the clouds were bothersome, but they did help by filtering out the Moon's light and so preventing extreme over-exposure, allowing subtle detail in the shadow regions to be seen.
