Dec. 09, 2006. Conjunction of Mercury and Jupiter.
Conjunction of Mercury and Jupiter photographed with an Olympus OM1 with a 135 mm lens and ASA 200 film. The f-stop of the lens was accidentally left at f/8. Mars was also in the field but it was too faint to record in this one second exposure and f-stop setting. Besides, it could not be even seen with the unaided eye even though it was at magnitude 1.5. The dawn sky was simply too bright.
