Regret not getting up earlier to take advantage of the clear skies pre-dawn.

The three planets. Mercury has moved much lower (nearer to the sun).

Recently my focus has shifted towards non-deep sky objects, for apparent reasons.

Who is the brightest and arguably the most beautiful? No other than the almighty sun

wow that's nice! I barely have time to do much astrophotography, so I'll not be as active as others
I do wish I had more time to take photos

There are still plenty of interesting non-deep-sky targets to shoot if time is a concern. Good luck!

Got up early to catch the alignment of the moon and planets. Mercury Jupiter and Saturn roughly sit on a straight line.

Shot many photos of moon and saturn. In the end, this photo stands out. It always reminds me how the moon-Saturn accompanied and followed my footsteps in the woods.
