Comet Lovejoy travelling through Taurus – imaged at 2200 hrs 12 January 2015 from Bathurst, NSW
Canon 7D, Canon 70-200mm L @200, Piggybacked on Celestron CPC 9.25 for 15 sec, ISO 1600, f/2.8. 23 frames stacked in DSS. Processed in Lightroom.
The next few weeks are best for viewing Lovejoy before the moon once again fills the night sky. Perihelion is 30 January when it moves into Andromeda.
