Just a quick snap done with a small 60mm telescope and my Canon EOS 80D during April's 2020 conjunction between the bright planet and the Pleiades.

This is a relatively rare encounter, occuring only every 8 years, always in April.

The nebulosity around the Pleiades is completely outshined by Venus, the brightest object in the sky except for the Sun and the Moon.
