An image of Comet Pan-STARRS was captured from my driveway at 4 a.m. MST about a mile east of Snowflake, AZ.  A Canon EOS Rebel T3 was used at prime focus on an Orion 80mm f/7.5 APO refractor riding on an Orion SkyView Pro GEM.  15 frames were captured at 30 seconds each using ISO 6400 with noise reduction off.  Post-processing utilized Canon utilities, Maxim DL, Photoshop and PhotoFiltre.
