When the close duo planets rose to a certain height and began to shine brightly, they add much to the dawn vista.

Yes, planet Saturn joins the duo and makes the quick short trip all worthwhile.

The moon is in Ophiuchus near the border with Scorpius, especially near the supergiant Antares. I did not carry any tracking mount other than a tripod, otherwise I would have tried some milkyway shots.
