Saturn, Mars and Antares, 12 September 2014

Zubenelgenubi, Saturn, the middle star of the Scorpions head (Dschubba), Mars and Antares all line up in this image of the Constellation of Scorpios. Click to embiggen.

Stack of 10 x 15 second exposures with my Canon IXUS (ASA 400).

During the week Mars will come closer to Dschubba. The dark rifts of the Milky way show up nicely for a light polluted suburb.

That's a nice picture, good effort withe the short stacking of images. Getting prepared for Siding spring Mars encounter?
