Canon T4i with 250mm Lens 1/4 second exposure. 2 photos stacked.
I work nights in downtown Tampa. So, I went comet hunting during my lunch hour. I forgot my binoculars. But I tried anyway! I could not see the tiny comet with my naked eye or in the view finder of the camera. So I took several photos sweeping the sky of about where I though it would be! I got lucky didn't I?
