It was very clear on this night at one point and Lovejoy had set, so I shot a few sub-images of Orion’s Belt to kill some time.  Although the Lumicon Deep Sky filter lets me go deep, brighter stars have ghost reflections off the filter and I had to clone them out.  There’s still a few remnants of them left.

Finally, after more than a week of solid clouds, the sky was clear enough to take some more images of Comet Lovejoy.  Conditions were poor, however, with variable clouds and bad transparency.   I made the most of it and shot some images with the TV-85 and also with my 200mm F/2.8 telephoto.
