It was cloudy the whole afternoon until sunset, and then magic happened. Really glad that I was able to witness and capture the moment, as I would be exactly 100-year-old the next time the two gas giants get this close. This is a composite image of two sets of R,G,B mono images with different exposures, one for Jupiter, and one for Saturn and the two Galilean Moons. 500 of 1000 frames stacked and wavelet adjustment with Registax, combined and processed with Photoshop.
