Comet Lovejoy (C/2013 R1) on October 27, 2013

Comet Lovejoy on Oct 27, 2013. 17×120 sec @ ISO 800, TV-85 at F/5.6, IDAS-LPS, modified Canon T3.

An image of Comet Lovejoy taken in difficult conditions.  Transparency was bad and the LP almost overwhelmed the 2 minutes exposure.   Then, my laptop rebooted for no apparent reason in the middle of the set.  By the time I was ready to start shooting again, Lovejoy was in the trees.

That’s the “star freeze” version above and below is the “star streaks” version:
