More clear skies for Jadwin Missouri so I had another chance to photograph comet Pan-STARRS with a 5 inch apochromatic refractor on a Losmandy mount My exposure time was 2 seconds ISO of 2500 and an F stop of 9 at 20:15:45. Cannon 60Da Camera
A wonderful, warm, clear evening, but the comet is still not naked eye visible, but a wonderful sight all the while, Comet Pan-STARRS did become quite red as seen in this photograph just before it set below the horizon.
