Lulin Snapped !
While the spectrograph was doing its stuff last night recording some data for a Pro/Am project, I took the opportunity around 2am to take a snap of Comet Lulin. Visually it was easy to spot as a fuzzy blob in the ubiquitous Liddl 10x50 binoculars. The 80mm wide field refractor showed a bit more detail and a hint of the tail and anti-tail.
