Lovely grouping of Jupiter, Venus and Mercury again this morning. Jupiter is slowly slipping away from bright Venus and Mercury and is just within the field of view with a 300mm lens. All four of the Galilean moons can be seen in this image. Canon 30D with 18-55mm lens was used for the other two images with exposure times of 4 and 6 seconds.
