Comet Lovejoy (C/2014 Q2)
     After a long drought of not being out in the Observatory, we finally got some clear skies.  Not perfect skies, but I will take what I can get.  My goal was to get an image of the comet.  I took 4 x  300sec. images @1600iso.   Using my Canon XSi, and Tele Vue NP101 @f5.4 refractor.  I used PHD guiding to track the comet.  That is why the stars look a little odd.  The images where stacked and processed using Photoshop CS6e.  I am hoping to get out again to get more images before the comet fades.
