Anyone else take a crack at this tonight? I didn't have time to get anywhere, so shot these from my balcony in downtown Salt Lake City, but I was pleased with what I got.

The wider shot shows how low it was in the sky but you can still see two distinct shapes. The cropped-in shot was taken a bit later, and you can see all four of Jupiter's moons! (Left to right: Callisto, Io, Europa, Ganymede.) Saturn looks a bit deflated, because my setup wasn't quite good enough to pull the rings out from the body.

Shot with my Sony A7Rii
Wide shot: Sony 70-200 GM
Cropped shot: Sony 200-600 G
