Canon EOS 300D DSLR at ISO 100, 135 mm f/3.5 lens, Adobe Photoshop composite of 12 pictures with exposures of 0.5 seconds each.
The comet is brightening explosively. Now it is a close match for Venus in brightness. Tomorrow, who knows? The composite could have been possible with less pictures, maybe 6, but I had only one chance and to make a good composition, I had to take another 6 of them.
