The last dawn in 2013 was brilliant (first after 2 cloudy months). The comet was about 20 degrees above the eastern horizon. The photo is a composition of 15 images: L5x300s, R45x150s,G3x150s,B3x150s. The temperature was about -4C and it was pretty windy, but the sky was execellent.Lovejoy has got nearly 5 degrees tail at the moment and its head has blue and green scarf.
