Two Planets and the Moon

I wanted to image Mars & Saturn last night but things got in the way. The I woke up at 2:15, seemed to be awake, and remembered that I had left the gear in the car and so I took off for the soccer fields behind First Security on Highway 10. Let me tell you, you can have the place all to yourself at 3 AM. The seeing was not so good and both planets were past the meridian and getting lower with each minute so I eschewed the Barlow and shot prime focus. After shooting the planets I tried a couple features on the Moon, Grimaldi and Byrgius. I hope you like.
