Comet Lovejoy

Jeremy has been busy photographing Comet Lovejoy with impressive results . ..

"Comet Lovejoy taken in the pre-dawn sky just before work today! It's only 10 x 30 second shots and the dawn has made the processing really hard.

This was taken with the Canon 300D and the MN190."

The forecast is not good for the next couple of days but Lovejoy is visible for a while yet in the early evening or early morning. You don't need fancy equipment it is easy to find in binoculars 'below' the Plough, if you know where to look.
