DescriptionThis is Comet McNaught at sunset. Easily visible to the naked eye, the picture doesn't do justice to the tail. I enhanced the contrast in the sky and used a noise redution program to clean up the image.

DescriptionOne of the last mornings to see comet McNaught. I went to the highest hill in the area to be able to see the comet very low in the morning sky. And it was beautiful as usual, I managed to capture the comet with my refractor on a tripod.

DescriptionI took this photo today (2007 I 10) at 5 pm local time (just after the sunset). The comet is fabulous. It is very bright and beautiful. I took several photos, and on one of them I managed to photograph a flock birds. I liked this photo the most that's why i wanted to show it.
