usbackroads destination- Comet Lovejoy
Click on photo go enlarge.
Taken from Wenatchee, Washington with a Canon 6D. Focal Length was 70mm, exposure 5 seconds, at ISO of 12800.
This pretty much approximates the view through binoculars, except that the field of view is much larger.
Worth seeing. Go out with a telescope or binoculars and view the comet.
