Pentax K5, 200mm Pentax lens set at f8. ISO 800. .7 second exposure. Tripod.
It was difficult to find it until 7:45 when the sky glow darkened, then we just had about 15 minutes to watch it. You know, even a "disappointing" comet, never disappoints me. There are few objects with as much mystery and romance as a comet! I like the idea that they come from so far out but are still part of the solar system "family".
