EquipmentTaken with a 102mm f/5 Celestron achromatic lens using a Canon T1i DSLR on homemade portable tracking mount. Details at http://www.flickr.com/photos/edhiker/8554107438
DescriptionSeen here is the comet over Mt Lukens, the highest point in the city of Los Angeles (5074 ft). The previous night, the comet was mostly cut off by trees and pollution, so for this shot went up into the local mountains, near a place called Red Box (near Mt Wilson) for a clear view.

DescriptionSitting slightly above the Prescott Valley on the west face of Mingus Mountain provided a view of the PanSTARRS, the Moon, the valley and some passing jets.

EquipmentNikon D4 camera, 300 f4 lens, ISO 800, 1 second, f5.6
DescriptionThe comet was barely a naked eye object, but very visible in the camera. Drove out with a friend from Albuquerque to the Very Large Array in central New Mexico, sky was clear and we saw the moon and comet to the horizon. Earthshine on the moon was incredible.
