This evening was my first sighting of Comet Pan-STARRS. I was on top of a hill kneeling in a hay field (thanks Pete) facing a biting cold wind. I wasn't dressed for this last blast of winter, but I really wanted to see the comet... because up until this evening our skies were too cloudy for comet watching.
The wind was much too strong for
taking good comet photos so I set my ISO up high and took some
hand-held shots as well as some on the tripod (with my hands on to help
steady the camera). My first photos of Comet Pan-STARRS are rather
terrible, but, hey, I guess some pictures are better than none.
I have "caught" other comets in times past.... like the one on my "About Me" page. It's the picture where my silhouetted telescope is pointing toward Comet Hyakutake.
