10" F/4 Meade Schmidt Newtonian on Losmandy G-11 Mount. Cooled Canon 400D DSLR. Images processed in Nebulosity and Photobrush.
Comet McNaught just before sunrise. 15 minutes total exposure time. This was a challenge as there was little time between the comet coming over the horizon and the start of twilight. All photos taken within 10 degrees of the horizon.
