Comet PANSTARRS through the KPO 18" Reflector in Florida

An improved shot of Comet PANSTARRS taken yesterday evening (3/15/13). Taken at the prime focus of the KPO 18" Reflector, with a Canon 60D. 10 frames integrated of 1 second exposure each, mostly at ISO 1600. The comet was about 10-12 degrees off the horizon. I think this will be my last shot of this object unless there is some kind of outburst that causes some brightening.
