    Sorry Just kidding, but it is the moon, and Jupiter is the lower blob and venus is the upper one. I know the shot sucks, 135mm isn't really and adequate astro lens, but I thought you guys might like to see this since it only happens once in a great while that you can see all three together.
    Edit sorry I meant Jupiter not Saturn thanks icassell

    Thanks for this post. I saw this tonight when I was out driving and was wondering what I was looking at. I figured one was Venus, but didn't know what the other was. Way cool!

    Just looked this up --- correct me if I'm wrong, but it's Venus and Jupiter (not Saturn)

    The next Venus-Jupiter conjunction will be March 2012.

    I got a pic of that also. You cant really see the planets cause the moon was so bright and I exposed the shot for that.

    Much better shot Jklersy, you must have used a tripod. I was sitting in my moms car with my camera out the sunroof, I figured it would be pretty stable since we weren't moving, and it wasn't windy, but it was shaking quite a bit apparently.

    When taking picture of a moon, you may not need a tripod as the shutter speed can be fast enough to avoid camera shake.

    The moon photo I took last time was using 1/320 shutter speed. Just need to make you you expose the photo as if you are taking it during the day.
