Canon 60D camera with 28-135mm stabilized lens.
On the evening of March 12th I was admiring the crescent moon above the desert surrounding our house near Gate’s Pass in Tucson, Arizona. Using Vortex Viper 8X42 binoculars I noticed the comet Pan Starrs to the left of the moon. I photographed moon and comet using a Canon 60D camera with 28-135mm stabilized lens. ISO 12800, f/5.6, 1/10 sec exposure. Photo was cropped and sized using Photoshop software, but is otherwise unaltered.
