This is what I got. Went with the 135 f2.

Did you try any other exposure combinations ? Perhaps a lower ISO like 800 and a slower shutter speed (like 1/2 to 1 second) ? I suspect that the exposure could have been a bit darker as they look a bit over-exposed.

From what the guys in the astro forum are reporting, it seems to make sense to take several shots at different exposures (to compensate for the varying brightness between the planets) and combine them in post. A few of the shots (with longer focal lengths) have got one planet exposed well and the other is overexposed if they did it in a single shot.

I shot wide open at f2, and did a little adjusting shutter speed, but basically because I don't do well out in the cold for long, I didn't do a ton.  I was more focused on focusing! LOL
