My intention was to show pictures of the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn on the 21st December 2020 from Benfleet. Unfortunately, the sky was overcast that night and nothing was seen. It was the same on the next 3 nights only clearing on Christmas day when the conjunction was well past.
However, I did take some pictures on Saturday 19th December and Sunday 20th December which give a view of what was going to happen. These were taken with a normal camera and not a telescope. The camera was a Panasonic DMC-FZ72 mounted on a tripod.
The names of the various objects on the pictures were checked using the astronomical site Stellarium Web.
