From the photographer: "Mars (bottom) and Saturn in conjunction at right, and the Milky Way at left, in deep blue twilight before the sky got fully dark, over the old corral of the 76 Ranch, in Grasslands National Park, Saskatchewan, August 27/28, 2014. Antares and Scorpius are just behind the corral gate at right, Sagittarius is at left in the Milky Way. The M6 and M7 open clusters are visible at left.
This is a photo composite (exposure blend) of two images: one tracked for the sky (on Star Adventurer mount) and one untracked for the ground, both 60-second exposures at f/2.8 with the 24mm lens and Canon 5D MkII at ISO 2000." Alan Dyer,
