The main picture shows the planets in the rosy glow of dawn. Lens focal length used was 35mm. The inset images were taken at 69mm focal length. The Moon was snapped at the same time as the planets (well within a minute or so) and I've included it to give scale to the separation of the pair of planets.

Beautiful capture, Brian. It was a great view, wasn't it? That gorgeous banana blush of a glow on the horizon, and then the crisp, clear, waning Moon over to the upper right really added to the scene. I observed a very strong earthshine effect on the lunar disk too.

Best wishes, Jeff.
