Quarter Moon Jupiter Conjunction

Tonight, I saw another close conjunction of the Moon and Jupiter.  The phase was a waxing quarter moon, unlike the full moon at November's conjunction.  However, this conjunction was about half the separation at about 45 arcmin.  Seeing a clarity were rather poor this evening, so I was not able to get a clear image of Jupiter's surface bands.

Images were taken at 2013.01.21  22:15 CST from Georgetown, Texas with a Canon 450D 400mm @ 1/2000sec.
