Comet Panstarrs & The Moon – March 12th, 2013

Comet Panstarrs & The Moon, March 12, 2013


Possibly the most photogenic part of Comet Panstarrs apparition occurred on March 12, 2013 and luckily, I had clear weather.  I took a number of images, all with a Canon 200mm at F/2.8, a Canon XS (modified) and my little CG3 mount and a laptop.  This particular image is a 2 second exposure at ISO 800.

  1. Can this image be used as a book cover? Naturally, you would be given credit for the cover photo. If so, how much would you charge?

    1. Yes, it can be used with credit given. One of my images of Comet Hyakutake was used for a cover of a book once. The guy offered $100 and I thought that was a pretty good price. What do you think?
