04 Moon or planet beside a deep-sky object

In anticipation of Jupiter and Saturn's 2020 Great Conjunction, I spent many nights watching the pair of gas giants. This photo from September 10, 2020, shows the planets alongside interesting deep-sky objects, such as the open cluster NGC 6774 and the globular cluster Messier 55. Despite not being visible in the image, I added a label for Pluto as it appeared near Jupiter multiple times throughout 2020. The equipment used for this photo was a Canon EOS 5DS set to ISO 2500 and 5.0 seconds, Samyang 85mm F1.4 AS IF UMC, and iOptron SkyTracker Pro.
