The conjunction is an alignment between two planets.
At 10:06PM, the Moon are in geocentric conjunction with Jupiter, at 0° 19'.
I tested with several shutter speeds with f/4.8 for the Moon and also for Jupiter.
The camera was set in TIF format type without cleaning "noise".
I assembled the best image of the Moon with the best Jupiter image.

I think this is a great technically difficult shot....the moon is very soft but I don't know how you could have sharpened it and still got jupiter in the photo....as a matter of fact, please tell me how you did the photo. I'm just starting to learn a little bit about astrophotography and this is the kind of photo I would love to take.
