Astrophoto: Venus-Jupiter-Conjunction – 03/23

My single shot, overexposed, picture of the Venus-Jupiter-Conjunction.

I was not really interested in shooting the conjunction since i do not really like the conjunction pictures with those little white dots, but I still tried it, because my wife and a newspaper asked me to.

It came as i thought and I did not really like the results I produced. But I liked the one that my platesolving shot while doing its job.
