This image of Uranus and Venus (10 magnitudes brighter than Uranus) in conjunction in Pisces was taken by BAA member Maurice Gavin using a Meade ETX-70 and Lodestar-M. This excellent image shows the difficulty of capturing and effectively displaying objects of significantly different magnitudes in the same field.
