Canon 450D primary focus on an Equinox 80mm F/6.25 semiapochromatic refractor, unguided but tracked with an SW EQ5 mount. 6 seconds ISO 400.
This was a shot from past night of 13th March, obtained from at 1900 m height from the mountains of Gran Canaria (Canary Islands, Spain). The Pan Starss comet is brighter each night, and noticeably increasing the length of its visible tail. This is becoming an amazing spectacle for northern hemisphere stargazers like me and, I wanted to share these exciting and unforgetteable nights with you. Thanks for your great magazine, and best regards from Canary Islands! Javier
