When Planets Align 2022

Every few years it is possible to see all of the visible planets together in the sky at once. At these times the ecliptic, the plane of rotation of solar system planets, is traced out across the sky by the planets themselves. I took the opprtunity to create a HDR panorama of the 2022 event, just as I did in 2016. This image needs to be viewed in full size to appreciate its scope and to spot details like Mercury, Aldebaran, and the Pleiades. Be sure to follow the linked image below.

Captured on 2022-06-25 10:30 UT with a Sony a7iii camera with a Rokinon 14 mm f/2.8 lens. Shot at f/4. Four panoramic 15 sec exposure and one 1/2 sec HDR capture of the Moon. Panorama exposed and compoisted in PhotoShop.
