On the evening of February 20th, I stepped out to see a pleasant view toward the west. I got my Canon camera with a 55-250mm zoom lens and a monopod to get a shot of it before it set any lower. The sight was a triple conjunction of a couple of day old Moon, Venus and Mars. I tried a couple of shutter combinations until I got a good exposure. The camera settings were 1/10 second with the lens zoomed out to 250mm. I was getting cold so I gazed just a bit longer before heading inside as a sight that does not come along often.
