Canon 5D MII w/ Canon 70-200mm f2.8 lens mounted to a fixed tripod. 8 second exposure @ 200mm f5.6 ISO 2500.
Image was taken approximately one hour after sunset as the comet was dipping low in the western horizon. I used the barren silhouetted trees to frame the comet as well as help give the viewer a sense of image scale.
