Olympus OMD-EM5 with 40-150mm zoom at 128mm f/8.0 on tripod. 6.9 sec exposure @ ISO 400.
Comet Panstarrs just to the upper left of the very young crescent moon. It has been very elusive here in Southern Ontario because of the heavy cloud cover. I was extremely lucky to have the skies clear at sunset to capture this image. It clouded over again later in the evening.
