Canon EOS Rebel T3i with Canon EF S55-250mm lens, tripod mounted 15sec unguided exposure (ISO 400)
After four unsuccessful tries to locate it visually with binoculars (vs Philadelphia's skyglow), I finally captured this image of Comet PanSTARRS (to left of the satellite trail) from central New Jersey. Every comet is interesting, but hopefully this is a warmup to Comet ISON!
