Comet Lulin February 28

Comet Lulin Feb. 28

Not much more to say except I wish comets like this one came around more often.

It’s high, and very photogenic.  Just what the space doctor ordered!  Above image was made February 28. with a Nikon D70 on a 4 inch refractor.  Six minute un-guided exposure.

ISO 400

dark frame subtracted-plus some tweaks in PS.  There’s a tiny galaxy in the tail of the comet.
