Another Shot At Astrophotography

This is by no means the crispest, best shot that has ever been taken, but it is my attempt at doing shorter exposure night sky objects. This object seemed to be close to the brightness of the waxing gibbous moon (image below). Based on the best information I have available, this object is likely Jupiter (one giant object, and 4 smaller visible objects, and Saturn isn’t up). The apparent size of the object matches something that would be planetary and the objects near it and within its space in the sky (doesn’t usually happen often with objects that size) reinforce that assessment. I have requested a few images from a telescope array operated by Harvard to double check what I observed.


I know what this object is. Our only natural satellite, and the object that seems to be the easiest for me to photo.
