Comet 2014/Q2 Lovejoy taken from Siding Springs, Australia using the Tzec Maun Telescope. I only could use 6 x 1 minute of data (I had a bit more, but somehow there were many high clouds I think introducing some heavy gradients). It's one of my first comet images like this, but there is still a lot to learn.
