Comet Machholz
on 12/28/04


With only an hour of shooting time and with the comet low in my local light polluted skies, I managed to get a few decent images of Comet Machholz on 12/28/04.

I also assembled an animated GIF image of the comet in the darkening dusk sky as my telescope tracked it behind a tree.  CLICK HERE to view it.
