Beautiful Astrophoto: Jupiter at Dawn

Prolific astrophotographer Joseph Brimacombe from Australia shot this beauty from his Savannah Skies Observatory near Cairns. He notes on Flickr that “Jupiter has been enhanced for effect,” but what a lovely effect! Plus what a great view of the landscape in Queensland.

Taken with a Canon 5D Mk II and 28-300 mm lens, six frames; three exposures each.
