Taken June 19, 2010,  3:30-4:10AM, Near Jemez Springs, NM, USA at 8300 ft. elevation.

15 minutes total exposure time, with 10" Meade Schmidt Newtonian on Losmandy G-11 mount, Cooled Canon 400D DSLR.

This one was a challenge, as there was little time between the comet rising over the horizon and the beginning of twilight.
