I had read in Sky & Telescope about this conjunction. It's better then I had imagined it. Good luck getting a shot of your own.

I don't know where to look now.  I enjoyed stargazing with my new binocs, though.   The Pleiades are nice and sharp.  Between my aging eyes and the light pollution, I can hardly find them with the naked eye.
