Comet Lovejoy...

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.

Sometimes you get lucky.
