March 11, 2013 at 19:58:12 Comet Pan-STARRS peeked out from behind the clouds, ice and rain just long enough for me to make a couple of exposures. Comets always create great excitement for me and this was a long awaited event.
I used a Cannon 60Da astro camera a 61x250 finderscope as a lens an exposure of 1/4 second with an ISO of 1000 @ f4.1.
Beautiful sight worth the wait, quite a challenge with the setting Sun and the low horizon! as always please feel free to use my images
